As creative artists, we have been discovering French artists and their techniques. In particular, we have been exploring the work of the French artist Georges-Pierre Seurat and pointillism. The children have sketched the school building and then used cotton wool buds to create the pointillism effect.

The year 4 children had a fantastic few days on their residential this year. The children participated in a range of activities and had lots of fun and laughter along the way. Take a look at the pictures to see what we got up to.
The children of Class 3 and 4 were fortunate enough to have our local PCSO visit us to discuss internet safety. This session involved lots of practical work as well as learning about the dangers of giving out personal information. We all now feel very well informed and know how to keep safe online.
As part of our science learning this term, pupils from Class 3 and 4 have been carrying out their own investigations into how shadows are formed as well as how images are reflected. The children have extended their core investigation skills, learning about the importance of controlling set variables to ensure a fair test. The most recent experiment saw the pupils creating multiple reflections of objects using mirrors placed at differing angles. This optical illusion created great excitement and engagement from our budding scientists!
The children have started creating their very own Aztec houses and produced some wonderful Aztec artwork. We have used information gathered from previous lessons to build their houses in a style that they would have seen during the Aztecs time in Mexico. They thought carefully about the materials that they would use and some children even brought in items from home! It’s great to see that the children are so excited by their topic.
