Well done to all the children in years 5 and 6 for their tremendous hard work this term. They have been on a journey, exploring the development of the camera and how the world has changed as a result of iconic events, remarkable people and even several disasters!
Watch the video here to gain insight into their expedition and let them introduce you to the culmination of our journey: their rather impressive final product!
Here it is, the final product for our Autumn Expedition: ‘What does the human race owe to insects?’
The children have worked tirelessly on drafting and redrafting their written work and artwork which have yielded some quite superb outcomes.
Well done 4GC!
This week, year 5 have been hard at work learning and utilising an ancient preservation method on our bananas. As we delve into the world of Ancient Egyptians, we start to discover some of the many interesting traditions they had. The preservation of pharaohs using mummification was a particularly interesting one.
In addition to learning the method, we obviously had to get hands on and give it a go ourselves.
A picture says a thousand words. Caption these!
The children’s mini beast artwork is taking shape. They have all done a fantastic job in trying to apply the skills they have learnt over the last few weeks to produce an accurate drawing of a mini beast for their final product for the expedition. This will, together with the art work, incorporate a non chronological report of either a snail or spider. I’m optimistic the end product will look great as the children have been working hard and getting smart with their art.
This week, the children have worked hard to produce a first draft of their chosen mini beast art work to go along with their non chronological report. Together, the artwork and the writing will form the children’s final product for their expedition. In order to draw this, they needed to use and apply the skills they have been taught previously; thinking about aspects such as tone, shading and shape. After producing the draft, they critiqued each others work where they will use this feedback to attempt the second draft next week. If it’s anything to go by the first piece, then the results of the second attempt should be even more outstanding than the first. Well done to all!
