Saw Project – Terrific Tastes and Touch!

Last Friday we had a very exciting day completing our first SAW (Science, Art, Writing) project all about our fingerprints and taste buds! We found out if we are tasters, non-tasters or super-tasters by counting the number of taste buds (fungiform papillae) on our tongues (Covid-safely of course!). We also expanded our fingerprints by printing them onto balloons. This allowed us to look much more closely at the whorls, arches and swirls. We then wrote poems using scientific language and finally created swirly handprints using shaving foam and food colouring! It was a busy day, full of fun and learning! 

Celebrating Harvest!

In Skylarks we have been finding out how Harvest is celebrated in other countries. We have learned about the Chinese Autumn Festival and the story behind it. We even made our own mooncakes which were very tasty!

We designed our own mooncakes and also practiced the Chinese character for moon. We hope you enjoy looking at our work.
