We focused on changes in technology and in design this week. We have planned an advert for a new gadget we'd like to invent and we've begun designing a woven object. Over the next two weeks we'll be editing an advert using ICT and will be actually making the woven object we've designed. We're really excited about both tasks because we're learning a new skill (movie editing) and practicing a skill we learned at Christmas-time (weaving). Keep looking at our website to see the results!
We spent an extra week in the 1970s decade during assessment week. So as well as our ICT and DT, we also spent a very busy, but fun, afternoon investigating how to make the best lava lamp. We worked for 2 hours solid and had a fantastic time thinking about how to carry out a fair test in our science investigation.
