This week we have been learning about Leonardo Da Vinci and looking at how his inventions have influenced modern technology. Did you know that his early designs have led to things such as aeroplanes, helicopters and parachutes? It is also thought that his early designs are now scissors - fascinating stuff. The Puffins had a go at inventing machines and items to help them like Leonardo did. We had everything from ice cream machines and walking houses to ice skates that make you the most perfect ice skater in the world.
We also had a dance workshop this week with Rosie who taught us the Tarantella, a traditional Italian dance. Rosie was fantastic and the children loved their lesson and picked up the dance brilliantly. We will continue to learn and practise this dance through the term.
