Today we explored a new art tool... oil pastels!
We have really enjoyed smudging chalk and charcoal last term and Mrs Molloy asked us if we can smudge the oil pastels.
We explored the new art media, drawing lines and pictures from our imagination and tried to smudge them.

Year 2 made houses out of different materials in science. We based our houses and the designs on the story of the three little pigs. We used a hair dryer and we huffed and we puffed and we blew the houses down. The houses were varied and imaginative and the children used lots of different materials such as plastic, wood, paper, card and metal.

In Year 4 this term we have been learning about the Ancient Egyptians. On Tuesday, we went to Bolton Museum to learn even more and Millie at the museum was very impressed with our knowledge. We had an explore around the Egyptian gallery and took part in a workshop. During the workshop, we learnt the link between Bolton and Egypt, we created a human timeline, we learnt about mummifcation and even saw some real mummies! We also pretended one of the children were a mummy and we had to sort the organs into the correct canopic jar.
Whist we were there, we were lucky enough to have a look around the art gallery, an aquarium and we learnt about the history of Bolton. We had a fantastic day!!

We were really lucky when Emily, a student at UCLAN, cam to demonstrate the digestive system to us as part of her dissertation. This was a great recap from our learning in Year 3 and 4. She taught us how the food we eat travels through our body, is used for energy and then how we poop out the waste! It was pretty gross but great fun!

We have had great fun learning all about Diwali. We made Diva lamps, created rangoli patterns using rotation and made lots of delcious food. This was then collected from all around school to create a display like they do at the temple. In our RE lessons we are considering the question "Is there one journey or many?" where we are learning about the Hinud beliefs around reincarnation, the cycle of life and the Samskaras.
