Art - Installation Art

In our Art lessons we have been learning about and creating our own installation art.

We were inspired by the installation artist Cai Guo-Qiang and we created our own installation art using explosions. We really enjoyed creating this!

 

  

  

We had a go at constructing our own installation art. We took everyday objects from around school and made interesting 3D installation artwork.

  

  

  

  

 

Design and Technology - Bread Making

We have been learning about bread making in our Design and Technology lessons. We have discussed why bread is important and learned about the different types of bread and what makes them different to each other.

Next we learned a basic bread recipe and followed this to make our own bread. After tasting our bread we talked about what we would like to add to our bread to make it different. Some of the suggestions were to add chocolate chips, dried fruit and cheese. We then chose in groups what extra ingredient we would most like to add and made our bread again, this time adding the extra ingredient. We really enjoyed tasting the final results!

Science - Melting

In Science, Year 5 have been investigating ice and melting. First we discussed what ice is and how it is formed, then we talked about the different ways ice can melt and which we thought would be faster or slower.

To test our theories, we split into groups and were each given an ice cube. Each group chose a different method of melting to test and we observed the different rates that each ice cube melted at. We documented our results by measuring the ice cubes as they melted and timed how long it took for each one to melt.
