In ILT (Independent Learning Time) we have been doing lots of things:
Using the big blocks
Outside learning with bamboo tubes
We had been reading a book about a Piglet Squid, and we decided to find out about other sea creatures. We wanted to make a life size whale shark so we had to research how big they are. Then we made one! It is 12 metres long!

One of the things we wanted to find out more about in our "Made in Orkney" topic was about the work builder do. We wrote to Darren and Barry, and they came in to talk to us about building in Orkney. We liked the laser to check things are level!

We went to visit the Orkney Chocolate Company, which is based in Shapinsay. It was great!
In school we have been doing some work in ILT - we even made chocolate playdough!
