Today was the day we made our ice sculptures…

We began our week, looking at famous ice sculptures on the internet with Mrs Barratt and Mr Swallow. Then we looked at all the containers we had collected for making ice shapes.

Mrs Barrott taught us all about the names and properties of 3D shapes so we thought we would try and spot some around the class room. This helped us understand what shapes we could use in our ice sculptures.

We chose a creature to make in our teams and then tried out different containers to see what our sculptures might look like!  We new the names of most of the 3D containers but some were tricky!!!

We then sketched what our creatures would look like and chose the colours for the different body parts. We even had to decide where 2 different shapes would join so that Mr Swallow and Mrs Wright could help us stick a straw in our containers to help us join the pieces together!

We create Book Creator diaries of our build…watch the video playlist to see what we did.
