  • Friday 2 December 2022 Busy week for Glow Worms This week has been a busy one for Glow Worms!
  • Friday 25 November 2022 New topic for Glow Worms! This week, has seen the start of our new topic in DT. The children have been fully immersing themselves into the activities. We have learned about different types of mechanisms: levers, sliders and hinges, and made some of our own to find out how they moved. The children then explored a range of objects to see what type of mechanism they used, before making a moving character for themselves. Finally, they tested different materials to see which one would be best for a Christmas card. What busy afternoons they have had!
