Class 8

Egyptian Amulets

We finally finished painting the Egyptian amulets we made from clay at the end of the Autumn term!

Making Instruments

We made our own stringed instruments in Design and Technology, linked to our science topic about Sound. We even managed to make the different strings of our instruments make different pitched notes!

Investigating how sound travels

We have been investigating how sound travels through different media; solids, liquids and gases. We made ‘cup phones’ connected with string and coat hanger ‘earrings’. We also listened to different sounds through water balloons and our wooden desks.

Making Easter Rock Cakes

We have been busy making Easter Rock Cakes!  We are using the baking as a stimulus for our instruction writing over the next few days.
