P.E. gets even more exciting!

Swimming - The Camford International School |

We were inspired by the artist Jackson Pollock for our Jubilee designs, splatting paint on a horizontal surface. We had lots of fun!

We learnt about taotie masks in Art and History (The Shang Dynasty). This gluttonous, mythical, Chinese creature appeared on Chinese bronze artefacts like masks and ritual vessels called 'dings'. The taotie's face had large eyes, fangs, horns and eyebrows, thought to warn people against seeking wealth and power.

We used clay casting, pressing objects into clay to make a mould. We then poured casting plaster into it, to create our masks. We had to work quickly, as it set extremely fast!

Pneumatic systems!

It was really tricky, but we persevered!

In Design Technology, we have been learning about pneumatic systems. We used our Science knowledge of solids, liquids and gases (Year 4) and learnt that by squashing air, the particles get closer together and increase the pressure. This high air pressure can be used for lots of things like drills and machinery to lift heavy objects.

For International Languages Day we learnt a little bit of Spanish. We learnt Spanish numbers up to ten, colours and some key phrases. We had fun creating 'fortune tellers' and playing 'snap' and 'pairs' games.
