Electrifying Science and Arty Maths

User Rating:  / 1

This week, we have continued to enjoy our Bollywood topic and our Apprentice task (showing great collaboration skills in our teams!).

We have also begun our new Science topic - Electricity - by taking part in a science workshop led by a visitor from ThinkTank in Birmigham. We had great fun learning about different types of electricity, about how electricity works and is used and about scientists of the past who have worked with electricity. At times the workshop was hair-raisingly fun!

We made some links in our topic work and maths too with an exciting arty matsh lesson. We learnt all about the paisley teardrop and traditional patterns from Indian culture and used our maths vocabulary to describe the shapes and patterns.

We then used press printing to create our our mathematical patterns (exploring repetition, rotation and reflection) using our own intricate teardrop designs. This activity really helped our reasoning skills and made us think about the maths words associated with shape and geometry. It was great fun too!
