Bumblebees making salt dough

Today we have learnt how to make salt dough. We used a cup to measure the amount of salt and flour we needed and then carefully added small amounts of water until the flour and salt moulded together. The salt dough turned blue as there was a little bit of blue paint left in the bowl.

We started to learn how to take a selfie using an iPad and we then used the photo to help us paint a self portrait which will go onto our Bumblebee board.

Mrs Hinds had brought in some conkers from her garden and we used a magnifying glass to take a closer look at them. We learnt that the conkers come from a horse chestnut tree.
