A trip to the science museum!

We were fortunate enough to rebook our science museum trip that was sadly cancelled back in December. We walked to Erith train station and then got on the tube at Embankment, some of us found this exciting as they'd never taken this mode of transport before! We spent the day looking through the exploring space, making the modern world and the secret life of the home galleries and learnt a lot of new interesting facts. We even had some hands-on experience wearing astronaut gloves! All in all, despite us getting caught in the rain on the way up there and then feeling very tired on the way home, we had a super amazing day! 





In art, we have been learning about Kente cloth, which is a Ghanaian textile made of handwoven cloth, strips of silk or cotton. We began by researching what Kente cloth is and why it is important in our computing lesson and then went on to make our own pencil cases using the variety of designs we had seen. 



In maths, we have been recapping angles. We remembered that there are a variety of different angles, these are: acute angles, obtuse angles, reflex angles, right angles and straight line angles. We can see angles everywhere we go - even if we don't think about it! We then reviewed measuring and drawing angles using a protractor - here is us putting our skills to work by finding angles in the wonky house.
