Moving Pictures


We used our understanding of what we had learnt to create our own moving pictures based on the nativity scene. This included different aspects of the scene moving through the use of linkages and levers including moving stars, moving donkeys and even moving shepherds. 

Adding our mechanisms.
Checking our mechanisms work.

"I really enjoyed showing my classmate what I had learnt during previous lessons. I was able to show I understood how to use linkages and levers as I created my own moving picture!"- Honey, C2


"It was a really good feeling knowing I had an understanding of the mechanisms we had focused on and this helped me as I created my own moving picture."- Lillie, C4



Making a Healthy Pizza


Once we had designed and made our own healthy pizza, we used our understanding of the process to create our own instructional text in order to explain the process to others. We listed the ingredients required before explaining the method used. Take a look at one of our examples below!

"Once we had made our own healthy pizza, we used developed our own instructional text so others can make their own pizza. We not only listed the ingredients needed, but we also explained the method needed to make a pizza. I can't wait to try and use what I have learnt to make a pizza at home!"- Riley, C3


"Writing my own instructional text on making a healthy pizza was really enjoyable. I feel confident in using what I now know to make my own pizza!"- Joseph, C4
