This week, we are excited to reveal some of the wonderful art work we are creating for our walking guide. We have taken our inspiration from the magnificent and extremely talented artist Quentin Blake – the author of countless Roald Dahl and David Walliams books.
Our crew used peer assessment and critique to improve they’re first draft and I am exceptionally impressed with the progress so far!
This week, we have spent time investigating how water moves around the water cycle. 3HJ thoroughly enjoyed creating their very own ‘water cycles’ but adding food colouring to water. The children drew the different stages onto clear plastics which we hung on the windows in our classroom.
This week we have started working towards our final product – a walking guide – which we will be revealing in the not too distant future!
Check out these wonderful bird feeders we made using bread, peanut butter and bird seed. We plan to take them on one of our walks for the local wildlife to enjoy. The children then wrote a set of instructions ready to be published in our guide!
My amazing crew walked over 8 miles on a hike from school to Brockadale Nature Reserve as part of our immersion week for our new and exciting expedition ‘Walking and wildlife’. The sun was shining and everyone showed huge determination and resilience.
What an achievement! I was so proud of each and every one of you!
Our puppets are well and truly on the way to being completed. This week we have cut out our designs using a seam allowance and used a running stitch to join all the different parts. All the children have worked really hard to make sure their stitches were neat and straight! A great job by all!
What an amazing week we have had welcoming all our children back into school.
This week, we revisited some ‘lockdown’ learning’ and pulled out the Victorian recipes we created to make bread. Our recipes included many herbs which was believed to help with simple aliments. We included Rosemary, Sage and Dill. The taste test went down a treat!
Both the children in school and at home thoroughly enjoyed getting dressed up as their favourite book characters. The staff in school also had lots of fun recording themselves reading their favourite stories for the children to guess.
Year 3 and 4 have fully embraced the Victorian era this week! We have evaluated the differences in how the rich and poor lived, focussing on clothing. Check out these poor children, their teachers look super strict!
What a wonderful time 3HJ had enjoying the recent snow day! Take a look and the magnificent snowmen and ladies constructed by some of the children in our crew! Top effort which certainly deserves a lovely mug of hot chocolate!
As you can see, our ‘Final Products’ are exceptional pieces of work. The children showed absolute resilience, working hard to produce a non chronological report about either a moth or bee. In addition, you can see the detailed pencil sketches. Here the children have used and applied different shading and tone techniques to create their own beautiful artwork of their mini beast.
