Do you know who these people are?

The Wright brothers, Alexander Graham Bell, Frida Kahlo.

We watched this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qt3pry6cWJM  about the Wright brothers and wrote a fact file. We had a go at making paper aeroplanes. We tried different designs. Click here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDiC9iMcWTc to follow instructions to make the one we thought flew best. We had paper plane competitions to see whose plane could fly the furthest.

We discovered how the telephone was invented https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p015z6fk . We made our own telephones. You just need yoghurt pots or strong paper cups and string. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yqB2KFwJCo For them to work, you need to make sure that the string is tight between the two cups.

Frida Kahlo was a famous Mexican painter. She did a lot of self-portraits. We did cartoon self-portraits following this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCDta3CQ9Ak and then we did a portrait, in the style of Frida Kahlo, using oil pastels and some paper flowers.

Here is a maths activity you could try at home. We loved it because we got to eat the smarties at the end. https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-he-008-smartie-maths-tallying-and-bar-chart-activity-sheet.

As part of their study the famous author, Julia Donaldson, Early Years made some ladybird stones and pig cupcakes and a sheep! You might like to try these at home.
