LEARNING ZONE ...
Art and Design - Funfair Carts
We have been designing our very own funfair carts using some research of existing rides and incorporating the things we love!! Our resident artists - Mrs Duxbury - has taught us how to draw our very own carts and has then inspired us to be creative with our designs. Here are a couple for you to see...
Mathematics - Scale Drawings
With our topic being theme parks, we have used this theme to learn all about scaled drawings! We have learnt that the actual sizes of buildings would be difficult to draw onto paper and so therefore builders, architects and many other professions use scaled drawings to complete their designs. We have used some scaled drawings to create our very own theme parks!!
