To finish our unit all about why the gospel is good news, we will be evaluating what we have learned so far and how well we have learnt it. The children will be given a choice how to present their learning and sharing their work with others.
The children will spend the morning looking at pop-up books that have levers and linkages. They will investigate how the moving parts work. They will then be given the opportunity to experiment with a range of levers and linkages before designing their own Christmas / winter greetings card. The children will decorate their cards before evaluating the effectiveness of their cards and asking if it met the criteria of the design brief.
