If you are home awaiting a Covid-19 test, here are some links to keep you up-to-date with your learning.

 

Creative Comics!

As part of our work in English about our book ‘Arthur and the Golden Rope’, we predicted how the story might end and created a comic strip version.  Take a look - I am sure you will agree that they look marvellous!  Well done to everyone for the hard work and effort you put into them!

Easter Craft Fun!

We had a lot of fun during our Easter craft afternoon making pop-up cards of Easter chicks.  The folding part was a bit tricky to make the beak but it was worth the effort!  They look amazing!

Viking Brooches

 

As part of our topic of Raiders and Invaders, we had great fun making these Viking style brooches.  To make them we used a circle of cardboard, string, PVA glue, tin foil and coloured paper.  Can you work out how we made them?

 

I am sure you will agree they look fantastic!  Can you find your one? (Click on a picture to see a bigger version).

Christmas Card Competition

We had a lot of fun designing and making our Christmas cards!  There was glitter everywhere!  Here are the finished products.  Can you find yours?  (Click on the pictures to see a larger version).

We won the battle of the bands in Times Table Rockstars! Well done everyone - and a BIG well done to Tim for winning “Most Valuable Player” out of the whole school!!

Fireworks Art

Today we made firework pictures with chalk and a silhouette of black.  We had some pink and black paper.  We made the fireworks with chalk.  Sometimes we could smudge the chalk to make a good effect.  Some people did the fireworks first and others made the silhouettes of the houses.  We enjoyed doing the firework pictures.  Click on each picture to see a bigger version!

 

Black History Month

Black History Month celebrates the life and work of Black people from the past and present.

Year 4 learned about Nelson Mandela and the challenges he faced as an individual in South Africa. They also learned about the changes he brought to South African when he was elected as President in 1994. 

The children spoke about what they had discovered during the session and had to reflect on the change they wanted to see in their world. See below for the end product. 

 

The better world we would like to see:

 

Perfect Pastels!

As part of our ‘Shore to Shore’ topic we have been studying Haiti and comparing it with the United Kingdom.  We looked carefully at a Haiti beach scene and then sketched it with drawing pencils.  Then, the next day, we used pastels to add colour (carefully blending with our fingers for the best effect).  The results were amazing!  (Click on a picture to see a larger version).

The pictures have definitely brightened up our classroom:
