To start our amazing food topic, we spent the day at the Eden Project learning about where many of our foods come from!
When we arrived, we met a guide and she told us about history of The Eden Project and how it was made. Then we were excited to explore the rainforest Biome before enjoying lunch in the sunshine.
Next, we met our crazy chef who set us a challenge! We needed to find different ingredients to make a globe cake! We were all very excited! With clues, We found banana tress, cocao beans, sugar canes and many more!
What an amazing day we had!

We have been very excited to work with ceramic artist Taz Pollard this half-term.
Inspired by our topic ‘Scribble’, graffiti and historical artists such as Jackson Pollock, we have been creating ceramic structures. First we used different materials to splat colours onto large pieces of clay. After letting them dry, we cut the pieces to make them into structures!
After they are fired, we will add other colours and details using glaze.

This week, we enjoyed a fantastic ‘Scribble’ inspired day in Bristol! First we met Rob from ‘WHERETHEWALL’. He took us on a tour of the city to look at different Graffiti and Street Art. He helped us learn about the different artists and how they created their pieces.
We saw some enormous pieces spray painted on the side of walls and even tiny pieces painted on chewy gum on the floor. We got to see street art pieces by artists such as Banksy, Cheo, JPS, Mac and many more!
Next, we were taken to an old police station which has been converted to workshop spaces for artists. We experimented with spray paints, doodled on a doddle wall, spray painted our own stencils and created our own tag signatures.
After that, we enjoyed a short walk to the Mshed Museum. We enjoyed exploring the museum, learning more about Bristol artists and seeing a Banksy piece up close.
