We designed a new hat for the Queen, some of us thought she would look good with an Iron Man hat... What do you think?
We used a new art technique called "block printing", we printed the Queen's head first, which looked like a stamp. We then drew our designs on polystyrene titles and used different colours to print her new hat.
Even the author and illustrator loved our designs
In preparation for the Queen's special Plantinum Jubilee celebration, we have read the story book called "The Queen's Hat" by Steve Antony.
We used Google Earth to find out where the Queen lives and where her hat travelled.
We asked Mrs ML if she could take us on a trip to London to meet the Queen.......
We looked at the recipe that Little Red Hen left us with the ingredients we would need to make Bread rolls. (We halved the ingredients so children could identify the numbers on the weighing scale)
First, we put a cup of wheat into a blender. we turned it on and blended the wheat... WOW it was noisy!
Once the wheat had been blended, we poured it out to see what it looked like.
We then put some wheat into the pestle, we tried to grind the wheat ourselves... it was really hard!
We enjoyed this activity and trying to help Little Red Hen with the wheat.
Gower Heritage Centre
We went to the Gower Heritage Centre to meet Little Red Hen.
We met Rachael, who told us the story of Little Red Hen and how she made bread all by herself because her friends were too lazy! We learnt how Little Red Hen made bread and how she used a mill, we explored the Centre and how a mill worked.
We went on an egg hunt and had a "Duck Race"
We made paper bag puppets and decorated an egg using scratch art.
We had lots of fun with Rachael at the Gower Heritage Centre.
