This week we have been exploring 3D shapes! We have been naming different 3D shapes and sorting them into groups and we even we exploring around our classroom and school to see what different 3D shapes we could find. We have had so much fun this week. I wonder what different 3D shapes you can find around your house or while you are out and about I can't wait to hear about what you find.

Our trip to the Quayside.

Before half term we went on a fantastic trip to the Quayside to finish off our topic about our local area. We walked along the Quayside, taking pictures and sketches of the local landmarks. We even got to see the Millennium bridge move for some boats, it was very cool! After that, we went up the the viewing platform in the Baltic art gallery and then drew another field sketch of the Baltic.
