Michelangelo

Swapnal, one of our volunteers, shared a short biography of Michelangelo today and this afternoon we had a go at cutting away clay to 'reveal the shape' beneath. It was our first try at sculpting and yes we have a lot to learn but it made us all really appreciate the amazing talent and skill of the artist to create folds, wrinkles, hair and exquisite detail in stone.

"Anyone knows an ANT, cAN'T, move a rubber tree plANT"

But we can lift an elephANT Well one of the children could, if she were a trapdoor spider, lift the equivalANT (sic), A piece of zoology research from the end of last term became a maths' issue today. We worked out what we could lift if we borrowed the strength of the trapdoor spider which can lift 140 times its own weight. To continue with the Frank SInatra lyrics, they had 'high hopes' when we did another comparison to make the point still further. The children tried lifting each other (under supervision) and found it almost impossible to do. Good fun and great maths. (Technically, she could lift a giraffe and rhino easily and only half an elephant - but it didn't rhyme so we used some

Butterfly nets and Net butterflies

On our class trip to RHS Wisley last year, we saw the display of miniature gardens submitted by schools for the 'Budding Gardeners' competition. One of our group wanted there and then to take part this year and is still as keen. So we voted and those that want have submitted an entry for this year's competition and are beginning to design the garden on this year's theme of attracting wildlife. Here are some of the group beginning to create butterflies, from wire and pieces of netting, to contribute to our entry. Even those children who weren't particularly interested the gardening aspect of it are enjoying the creative side.
