Stupendous Shelters!

We have been reading 'Holes' by Louis Sacher as our class reader this half-term. We have immensely enjoyed reading the book and meeting all of the characters, like Stanley and Zero. In the novel, the children live and work in a desert-like area called Camp Green Lake. For our DT learning, we had to design and make a shelter for this habitat, using materials from the scrap shed. We split in to two teams and had to select materials that were appropriate for the job, as well as figuring out how to join them together while working as a team. Who do you think built the most effective shelter?

Glockenspiel grime?

In our Music lessons, we learned how to play 'Blinded By Your Grace Part 2' by Stormzy on the glockenspiel and chime bars. Here is a short clip of us playing the song.
