Blackford Bi-Weekly Number 14

KS1
This term in RE we have been focusing on Special Places. We have looked at special places for different religions. We looked at Hinduism and we made our own shrine and thought about reasons behind each object.

KS2
Our new topic this term in Science has been ‘Light’ which the children have thoroughly enjoyed. This week we were investigating which materials reflected light the best and then we designed our own school bag to use in the dark nights.

Blackford Bi-Weekly Number 12

KS1
In Science, we have been doing little investigations to find out which material works well for a certain job. We think the results will help the character of our book, Bob the Man on The Moon.

KS2
In Art, we have completed our work on ‘aboriginal art’ and some of our work is available to see on our website and Twitter account. We have now begun to look at Chinese water colour. Topic has been very exciting so far as we have been learning about ‘space exploration’.
