Dragonflies animal print artwork
After looking at animal patterns last term, children were keen to investigate animal footprints this term. We started by identifying and sketching the shapes of different animals' footprints. Then we made salt dough and practised making our prints before designing our final footprint tile and creating this from clay. We used a range of tools in interesting ways to make patterns.
Dissecting flowers in Dragonflies
This term we have been learning all about plants. To get a greater understanding of the different parts, we have dissected the flowers and looked more closely at the individual parts with a magnifying glass. We looked closely at the pollen and discussed how it can get transferred between plants by bees.
Measuring in Dragonflies
We have been learning all about different types of measurement over the past week. Dragonflies have looked at the units of measurement and appropriate measuring tools for measuring weight, height/ length, temperature, time and capacity. We have experimented and designed our own investigations and questions and had lots of fun!
