Linked to our exciting history topic of Ancient Benin, this week the children enjoyed looking at and evaluating a variety of artwork from the this period, particularly sculptures and objects. They then designed their own sculptures in the style of the Benin Bronzes.
As part of our work on shape in maths, the children learned about radius, diameter and circumference. They then had fun putting their measuring skills to work when finding the radius and diameter of different circular (and some spherical!) shapes in the classroom.
Design and Technology
Please be aware we will be creating steady hand games similar to the picture below. Closer to the date, we will ask you to send your child to school with their own battery and any other useful or decorative parts for their design!
Have a lovely weekend!
