Welcome back to all the children. We have already been working hard. Last week the children had their first session with Maria Whatton, our resident story teller. She introduced the 'mantle technique', and the children began to think about inventions and technological advances in the last three decades. This will link with our English, Science and Design Technology work. The children have already begun to create designs for moving vehicles and are collecting materials for their models. You should have now received this terms newsletter and homework grid. Please ask for a copy of these if your child has lost theirs.
Warm up sessions with Maria.
The children have been working in groups to create an advert for their invention.
