P3/4 Art project - design a lifeboat!

10th Nov 2021

Our topic for this term is People Who Help Us and over the past few weeks we have been taking part in an art project with Mrs Preston on a Wednesday afternoon.  We worked in groups to plan, design and create a lifeboat.  The first week we planned what resources we would need to make our lifeboat and what each resource would be used for.  The next few weeks we used our imagination and creativity to create the lifeboat using junk art, paint, glue and other resources.  

Today we were able to present the boat to our class and tell them lots of details about the name of the boat, the captain’s name, how many crew it had and one group even told us the measurements of its height, width and length. 

The most exciting part of our project was testing if our boats floated or sank.  We are pleased to say that most of our boats floated and only a few toppled over onto their side.  We talked about why they toppled over and we would consider this when completing a similar project. ⛴🛳 

Well done to all the boys and girls for their fantastic team work and excellent presentation skills in front of their peers. Super work! ⭐️⭐️⭐️
