The Abbeystead blog has been written by Cerys, Eva and Anita this week.

This week has been Christmas craft crazy!

On Monday we made Milo the Mars Rover (and other science stuff) with Lego WeDo 2.0. This is a special type of Lego that you build using online instructions, you can then code your creation to move, sense and collaborate with other creations. We built a Mars space rover!

On Tuesday we sewed Santa, Rudolf the red nosed reindeer and gingerbread men decorations for the Christmas tree. We were all very good at threading a needle by the end of it!

On Wednesday we used ink, water and a process called marbling to create interesting swirly patterns on paper. We used them to represent the gas planets which we then made into calendars.

On Thursday we presented everything we have learnt this term about space, by encouraging other classes to Run the Solar System. After researching and writing a presentation on each of the plants, we positioned ourselves around the playground (attempting a scaled down version of the actual solar system), groups of children then ran from one planet to the next where we shared our presentations.

Friday has been a blast; games, a movie and lots of sweets!

Have a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year, thank you for reading.
