Week Beginning 28th January

This week in science we were sorting materials into two groups based on their properties. We discussed various properties before deciding on the two groups malleable and rigid. We discussed what these terms mean, malleable means the material can change shape (malleable move) and rigid means it can't change shape (rigid as a rock). The children had a range of materials in the middle of their table including, sand paper, metal chain, plastic, foam, wool etc. They had to try and bend, twist, pull, push and stretch the material to see if it changed shape and then decide which group it should be sorted into.

Week Beginning 21st January

This week as part of our English Skills lesson we looked at interesting and new vocabulary. The children were given a range of adjectives, that they may not be familiar with, and asked to find out the definitions. We used an online childrens dictionary called Britannica Kids. The children loved using the Ipads and were fantastic at using the search bar and touch keyboard to find their definitions.

Week Beginning 17th December

For the last week before Christmas, the children undertook many art activities. As part of DT the children created a moving picture of Santa delivering presents in his sleigh. The children created a winter night’s scene and used lollypop sticks that they could then use to move Santa across the nights sky. In addition to this, the children made tree decorations, calendars, Christmas cards and tea light holders using a range of materials.

Week Beginning 26th November

This Friday we had Green Day! We talked about plastic pollution. We discussed how plastic is very useful and we thought about all the things plastic is made from. However, getting rid of unwanted plastic is a challenge. We discussed how this affects animals, especially in the sea and oceans.

We then made our very own sea turtles using recycled lids from our milk bottles.

Week Beginning 19th November

This week the children have been looking at the artist Pablo Picasso. They learnt that he liked to draw, paint and design sculptures. They also learnt that his designs were abstract. This means that his pictures didn't always represent what they would normally look like.

He used shapes and colours to make unusual pictures of faces so that they look distorted or out of line.

The children created some pictures of their own using photos from people from the past including Queen Elizabeth l and King Henry Vlll as these are people we have been learning about in our history topic.

!Children in Need!

On Friday, the children really enjoyed wearing their spotty clothes or pajamas to school! In the afternoon we attended the bring and buy sale. We were then lucky enough to also have a cake sale and movie :)

Thank you for all your donations!

We really appreciate all your support and the children had a fantastic time.

This week we have been learning about Queen Elizabeth l. We have learnt lots of interesting facts including how long she was queen for, who her family were, how she had black teeth from eating so much sugar and how she used to throw her shoes at people when she was angry! We have started drawing our own portraits of Queen Elizabeth for a new class display.

We used our shading skills from last week to start painting our flowers in the style of Georgia O'Keeffe. We started with the original colour and then mixed white to make the colours lighter and lighter. Next week we are going to make our colour darker!

What colour can we add to make our red and purple darker?

Week Beginning 17th September 2018

This week in art we have been learning about the artist Georgia O'Keeffe. She began experimenting with painting close up views of flowers. She used oil paints in vibrant, bold colours. We are creating our own version of O'Keeffe's work. First we practised shading by mixing colours to make them lighter every time. We then sketched our own flowers ready for painting.
