A Contrasting Locality Field-trip - St Hilary Village 2015

Our Science trip to Cog Moors Water Treatment Works June 2015

We studied the work of Welsh artist Helen Elliott.

She lives in Pembrokeshire and paints images of the sea and surrounding areas.

We tried to create pictures using her style. We used both paints and felt pens for our pictures.

As part of our homework we had to look through our bins at home and find rubbish that we could recycle. We had to try and think of a use for the things we found. We took them into school and had a really fun afternoon turning our ”rubbish” into something useful.

 

“I made a money box that is also a box for keeping things safe. I had a great time making it.” – Shannon

 

“I made Bart Simpson” – I’m going to put my picture on my wall” – Owyn

 

“I made a money box out of a Pringle tube” – Elisha

 

 

      “ I made a container to keep my pencils in.” – Doniya.

We had a very busy afternoon. Mrs Wheeler had given us a challenge to find out which drinks would cause our teeth to decay. We worked in groups to decide which drinks we would test. We used red cabbage water to test how much acid was in each drink. We were amazed by some of the results. We didn't realise that orange juice and apple juice would be so bad for our teeth. When we mixed them with the cabbage water they turned bright red. This showed us that they contained a lot of acid. We also found out that energy drinks are bad for your teeth. The best drink for your teeth is water.

Science - Which drinks are worst for your teeth?

We have been learning about how our teeth decay. We did some experiments in science. We put an egg in some water and an egg in white wine vinegar and left it over night. When we came in the next day there was yellow foamy stuff all over it. This is like plaque on our teeth! We wondered what would happen if it stayed in the vinegar longer so we left it over half term. When we returned to school there was no change to the egg in the water but the egg shell in the vinegar had become all soft and squidgy - and it was covered in brown stuff!

This has shown us how important it is to brush our teeth regularly and properly.

CLASS 6

We have had a very busy week!

Mrs Ashfield came in and we completed our project on knot gardens. We took our designs from the previous lesson and made stencils. We then used fabric paints to transfer our designs onto fabric. The results were brilliant! We are now going to create a display for you to see in the corridor

 

 

 

On Tuesday afternoon, Deacon Howe visited our class. We were investigating our new topic of “Called”. He made us think about what God is calling us to do. We discussed Baptism and Confirmation. He also brought in his electric guitar.

 

This week we have been continuing to develop our work connected with our visit to Llancaiach Fawr. Mrs Ashfield came into school to help us with an art project on “Knot gardens”.

This is part of a know garden we saw on our visit.

 

 

 

First we looked at examples of different knot gardens and then we cut templates from paper. We then drew our designs and coloured them in with oil pastels.

 

 

 

 

 

On Friday we will be printing our designs. Look out for pictures of our finished art work.
