Autumn term!


We had a brilliant Wow Day to start our 'Flashes and Bangs' topic for the autumn term.

The children made their own harmonica and learnt to play this, they were very tuneful.  They then designed and made an instrument using recycled materials, we had a range of different instruments such as guitars, drums and even a piano! This started to get the children thinking about how sound is made and how it travels.

We had a great day and can't wait to learn all about sound and electricity over the coming weeks!

'Someone Builds The Dream'

We have really enjoyed reading the book 'Someone Builds The Dream' by Lisa Wheeler and Loren Long. We have taken part in lots of exciting activities based on the themes of the book including, building towers made out of spaghetti, making dream catchers from natural resources and painting the Eiffel Tower. We have also written our own poems called 'OBS Builds The Dream'. 



The Iron Man

We are looking forward to our work about Flashes and Bangs relating to the book 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes.
