Ancient Art and Super Slime
In computing, we are learning about codes. This week we looked at Morse Code which is sent by sound, flashing light, or even by blinking.
We practised sending and receiving via blinks and then created our own messages with finger painting.
Can you read the message?
We travelled back in time for art this week, to look at Roman Mosaics. First we studied a photo of the Mosaic at Lullingstone Villa which we will be visiting in a few weeks. We noticed the range of patterns, the image from a myth and Latin words all incorporated within the mosaic.
To create our own mosaic, we took a range of small colourful squares and sorted them by shade. Then we practiced laying them out together to see what kind of image or pattern we could make. One of the most straight forward techniques was to start with one colour and then build out from there.
During Terrific Thursday, we also had some outside scientists come in. It was chilly to be outside, but very exciting to investigate - and even make our own slime.
Extra homework for this week - we have been researching Emperor Hadrian and Queen Bouddicca. Can you find out more about them? Who do you admire the most and why?
