This week Class 4 have developed their skills when mixing paint. The children started off with yellow and then slowly added more and more white to develop their understanding of tinting colours. The children then looked at shading and how adding more and more black will deepen the colour until it becomes the darkest shade. Surprisingly, this took a while for the children to get the hang of, but the created some great examples of tinting and shading at the end. Well done Class 4!
So far this week, the children have dissected daffodils to understand how a flower is pollinated and which are the male and female gametes and reproductive organs in a flower.
The children have also continued developing their skills in tag rugby as well as finishing their short 'Penny dreadful' style horror stories. During maths the children have looked at compass points, linking this with angles and turns, degrees and fractions.
Well done Class 4
This week Class 4 have continued their journey in art, we are currently studying 'If it is possible to create your own alternative reality'. As part of this the children have looked at different novels and films that have different realities such as Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Labyrinth. The children have linked this with their Literacy Novel of Cogheart and created maps of an alternate reality in which their horror stories are taking place. During art, we have had a go at following a step-by-step guide to drawing Dr Seuss characters. They did brilliantly and tried incredibly hard.
During PE the children have had brilliant fun playing Tag Rugby and developing their hand eye coordination and team playing skills. Well done Class 4!
This week the children began reading the novel Cogheart by Peter Bunzl for there novel study. This book will be used for both Guided Reading and Literacy. In the beginning of the book, the main character Lily is reading Penny dreadful comics, therefore, this week we have begun planning our own horror stories in a Penny dreadful style.
Our second book, Bloom, links with science (living things) and PHSE. We have read the story and discussed feelings, we have then created posters to show what makes us 'bloom' and 'gloom'.
