Testing Paper Aeroplanes and Creating Moving Vehicle Artwork

This week as part of our English and Topic learning the children have been discussing different ways they can test their paper aeroplanes. They have explored the use of a paper clip, which acts as a weight to make their plane fly further. They carried out three different tests to find out which paper aeroplane could: fly the furthest; make a perfect landing by landing on a target and fly through hoops.
The children discussed how to make the tests fair: only using one paper clip; starting from the same point and having the same number of attempts. The results were recorded in a table and the children were able to write simple concluding statements.

Perfect Landing

Loop the Hoop

The children have explored the term 'algorithm' by following a series of steps to complete drawing of crazy creatures. They will use this knowledge to help them use programmable toys, sending them from one destination to another.

As part of their Topic learning 'From A to B' the children looked at some futuristic pictures of different vehicles. They then created their own images in the same style using oil pastels to colour the background. The children drew a template of a vehicle on card and then used this to make several vehicles. 
Come and have a look at the completed pieces of Artwork... they are FANTASTIC!
