Conflict and Change Vehicle - Spring
Welcome to the page for our second vehicle, "Conflict and Change".
On this page you will be able to see updates of what the children have been doing during their vehicle.
This term, our end of vehicle outcome will be a Viking fashion show! During this, we will showcase to you some of the dye and weaving work that the children have done. All ticket sales will go to Mary's Meals.
We will be looking at:
History - The Vikings
Geography - Settlements
Science - Living things and their habitats.
Art - Making sculptures, using natural dye and weaving.
DT - Making a Viking Long Boat
Computing - The history of animation
On Tuesday 21st January, we looked at the history of animation in computing. We discussed what we know about animation already and said that we watch animations at home, such as Wallace and Gromit. We then watched a video that showed us how animations were put together. Lots of us didn't know that animations were created through pictures. We even got to watch some of the original Mickey Mouse animations by Walt Disney! We then researched some famous animations and people who had created them.
When we went back to class we had a go at a version of animation ourselves. We made flip books to show how pictures need to slightly change on each page to make it look like our drawing is moving.

Today in Art, we used our sketching skills to design our soldier ready to be modelled out of clay. Our partners helped us by posing as a soldier while we looked back and forth between them and our book, sketching out our image.
