Educational Visit to Centre of the Cell

Yesterday we visited the Centre of the Cell in Whitechapel and did lots of learning about the human body. We were trapped inside the nucleus, playing lots of interactive games that taught us about the digestive system, cells and major organs.

We got to look at real human organs that had been donated to scientific research.

We left the visit feeling very inspired and with lots of questions!

Self Portraits

Our new topic in Art is self portraits. We started last week with a very fun activity!

We started by folding a piece of paper in to quarters. In the first quarter we had to draw a self-portrait as quickly as possible. In the second we had to do it with the wrong hand. For example, Reece (who is left handed) had to use his right hand! In the third box we had to close our eyes! We did a lot of giggling when we opened our eyes and saw what we had produced. For the final box, we had to draw a self-portrait without our pencil leaving the page.
