This week we have progressed from 2D lettering styles into 3D. Take a look at our first few attempts. We are going to further develop this skill next week using ink and wax techniques to enhance lettering.

Art Club : Letters with style!

Hello everyone!

This is our first Art Club post and we hope many more will follow. We will be photographing some of our works and would love for you to comment.

Enjoy our first post and keep an eye out for next week's progress.

We started by watching a youtube clip which taught us how to do bubble writing. Then we started to add a theme to our lettering. See if you can guess the childrens different themes.

On Thursday, Year 6 went to Techniquest in Wrexham.  This is a 'hands-on' Science Discovery Centre that has an array of puzzles, challenges and educational demonstrations that inspire and engage children and young people.
We spent a proportion of the morning tackling the 60 hands-on science exhibits.  This made us use a lot of brain power to reason out various challenges of puzzles, eg removing a continuous circle of rope from a solid structure, a bit like a puzzle you get in a Christmas cracker but on a much larger scale!  

    We then moved on to our workshop which was linked to our new topic of Solar Power.  Our challenge was to construct a fairground ride using KNEX that would rotate using a small solar powered motor.  The winner was the team whose ride could rotate unsupported and could theoretically carry the most people on the ride.  The winning team was Ryan's team who were the only group who rotated their ride vertically and was sturdy when tested.  Well done to them.
