Time for our final sporting event – the hurdles! We’ve got four athletes lined up, and Ofelia is acting as starter. On your marks…
Oh dear! Ernest’s tripped over his own snozzle!
They’re approaching the hurdle…
Whoops! Winston’s tripped on his hurdle!
Fury is over safely! Nano is racing along behind… Now he’s over safely too.
Close to the line, it looks like Fury might win! Hang on! How did Nano move so fast!?
Oh Ernest! You’re not supposed to help him!
Well, that’s tricky. There’ll have to be a steward’s enquiry. But after a bit of a chat, everyone agrees Fury won, but Ernest was just being kind. Ofelia suggests that they all settle down to a snack or two.
We’re going to have a go at some string art today! We’ve got string, pins, and a template. We’re going to stick them into a piece of balsa, painted black. You could use corrugated card, or polystyrene.
First thing to do is to lay the template on the wood, and put pins, or nails, in round the edge. We’re putting one at each corner and a few inbetween. Fury’s got her big hammer to tap them in with.
Now, Nano is going to take the thread and go for a walk in and out of the pins! He goes all round the edge first, then back and forwards to fill in with a random pattern.
Now Nano, you can pick it up. What? It’s too heavy? It can’t be, it’s only balsa!
