Incredible Inventors - We will be learning about inventors and their fantastic inventions that have changed our lives.

As an introduction to our new topic, Incredible Inventors, the children were asked to research an invention of their choice over the Easter holidays. 

 

 

 

We collated their information sheets into a book.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

The children were also given a challenge to make a model of their chosen invention that they could then present to their classmates. Please feel free to come and have a look at the children's findings and their models.

 

Here are the amazing models that the children have made.

The children enjoyed working in small groups to create a timeline of inventions.

Cross-curricular learning: The children worked in pairs and used the Purple Mash software to design and make a vehicle.

They were able to customise their vehicles and then paint them using the special effect tools.  The designs have been printed out and the children will have the opportunity to make their 2D designs into 3D models.

Here are the children's vehicles - click on the pictures to enlarge.

Mrs Macintosh taught us a lot about Louis Braille and helped us to appreciate what it must be like to be blind.  She showed us how to type and read braille and then all the children typed their names using the Perkins Brailler. The children also created tactile pictures and used some of their other senses to guess objects whilst wearing blindfolds.
