As part of their America topic, 5EW made dream catchers. This Native American Indian tradition is supposed to ward off bad dreams by catching them in its web and letting only the good dreams pass through.
The children made the frame using sticks of willow and then Mrs Milbourne showed them the technique of using string to create the dream catcher pattern. They then added beads and feathers to decorate.
On Friday, the children in 5EW continued their space theme and made rockets! We looked at making them more streamline and discussed the best air resistant shapes. Then the class worked in teams to turn a plastic bottle in to a rocket! Can you see what additions they made? Which one do you think will go the furthest when we launch them!?
This week, 5EW made alien dens to link in with their new space topic! We discussed what kinds of things aliens might need in their dens. The children thought of a range of imaginative ideas including satellites to connect with their friends back in space and an alien version of Harry Potter!
This week, 5EW took their crime and punishment topic outside...
