In science we have been learning about how fossils are made. We made some fossils ourselves. We first made some playdough which represented the mud at the bottom of a swamp. We then pressed shells into the mud to make an impression. We then filled the shape with plaster of paris to show how minerals can end up filling the mold which then harden to form a fossil.

The Stonemason’s Yard

Published by under Art

In art, we have been exploring a ‘Take One Picture’ from The National Gallery called
‘The Stonemason’s Yard.’

Image result for the stonemason's yard

It is a beautiful oil painting by Canaletto and was painted in the early 1700s. The painting is a view of Venice and is brought to life by the people in the square.

We explored the details of the painting by using IPads to zoom into the painting, we found lots of interesting people hidden in the many windows.

Next, we worked as a class to recreate the painting. We each had a section of the painting to draw and decided which medium to use to add colour and detail. After putting all the pieces together, this was our brilliant final piece:

Rocks and Volcanoes

Published by under Science and tagged: , , , , ,

In science we are looking at the different types of rocks and how they form. The pupils made their own sedimentary rocks using a little bit of plaster of paris to cement the sediment together. We also found some rocks on the Willow Bank behind the school and we looked that the particles under a microscope.

We watched a video about volcanoes and how igneous rocks form. We reacted vinegar and baking powder together to make our own volcanoes.
