November

Friday 28th November - This week in Art we started to look at the work of Claude Monet and compared impressionism with pointillism. In PSHE we continued to think about the challenges refugees might face when coming to live in a new country and used paper balls to represent the issues they faced to show how hard it is for a refugee to manage them all.

Friday 18th November - We have enjoyed another week packed with creativity from developing our pointillism techniques in Art by creating pictures of mountains and rivers to recreating a rhythm from Gustav Holst's Mars from The Planets using percussions instruments. In PE we practiced our dribbling skills and had fun dancing in our pyjamas whilst refining our moves from West Side Story. 

Friday 11th November - The highlight of this week was definitely seeing the reindeer. Whilst in Geography we learnt about contours of mountains and even made our own contour models! We ended the week with Art by experimenting how to represent water using the pointillism method (painting using small dots instead of brushstrokes) to paint rivers.

Friday 4th November - We have had fun this week learning our new model text based on the book Hidden Figures and looked at a diary entry by Katherine Johnson to create our text maps. Whilst in art we have started to learn about pointillism looking at the artist Georges-Pierre Seurat. In Geography we used atlases to research the location of the world’s major mountain ranges.

October

Friday 21st October - We have had a week full of creativity from using our basketball skills to create games in PE, constructing our bridges and ending the week using our own sentences to play rhythms...phew!

Have a relaxing half term.

Friday 7th October - This week we have had fun building and testing our bridge designs in DT. Whilst in computing we programmed a micro:bit (a pocket-sized computer) to display our designs using an LED display and added sounds to bring the designs to life. Whilst in PE we have been improving our dances to include a new move from the Haka!
