5F – Printing

In 5F, we have been printing!

At the beginning of term, we did some close observational sketches of flowers. We then selected the most interesting section of our sketch to design our printing tile.

Last week, we transferred the outline of the design onto polystyrene tiles. We then covered the tile in ink and printed it onto paper.

We then washed and dried the tile and added the details, patterns and textures and repeated the printing process in a different colour.

Have a look below at some of the wonderful outcomes:

They really rival William Morris’ wallpaper designs!

5F – Science

In Science, we have been looking at the different theories around a geocentric vs a heliocentric system.

In the past, scientists thought that the planets orbited around the Earth (geocentric). We now know that the planets orbit around the Sun because it has a greater gravitational pull – because it is huge!

Today, we made models of our Solar System. We chose which fruit would represent which spherical body according to the size. We then put them in the correct order from the sun. Finally, we drew lines to represent the orbit of the planets around the sun.

We then wrote explanations to go alongside the models:
