War and Peace

Hello and welcome back! laughing I hope that you all had a lovely Easter break and are feeling ready for the Summer term. We have lots of exciting things in store for you! This term our topic is 'War and Peace' where we will be focusing on Ancient Greece, World War 1 and World War 2. This topic will also be explored through the coverage of our Foundation subjects.  In Science we will be learning about 'Living Things and Their Habitats'. We will be exploring different types of animals, learning about their life cycles and their habitats. We will also have the opportunity to plan our own investigations and observations.

Our PE days this term are Monday and Tuesday. Please make sure that your indoor and outdoor PE kits are in school on these days, ensuring that they comply with the school uniform guidance.     

Homework will follow the same format as last term. We will set a variety of homework activities to be completed throughout the half term. You will have the opportunity to complete the homework activities of your choice and will be given a deadline for homework to be handed in by (before half term). 

Please continue to read regularly at home and practise your times tables to improve fluency.

Thank you for your continued support, and I look forward to the Summer term ahead! cool

Message in a bottle

In English this week we have been writing a 'message in a bottle' from Michael (the main character in our class novel 'Kensuke's Kingdom'). We have worked hard to include imagery to give detailed descriptions, and used repetition and exaggeration to convey Michael's desperation to escape from the island.

This child received a Headteacher's Award for their amazing piece of writing! cool

Romero Britto

This week in Art we have been looking at the work of Romero Britto. He is a Brazilian artist who uses elements of cubism, pop art and grafitti in his work. He uses his art to portray different issues in modern day society in a way that people can relate to, through a combination of bold colours and patterns.

We discussed the messages behind one of his most famous pieces of artwork, 'Cutting trees'. It shows the effects that humans cause on the Earth by cutting down trees and destroying nature. He gave the planet human like features, such as a face and arms, to show that the Earth should be treated with love and respect.   

He used this painting as a way to alert humans of their wrong-doings and the damage that our planet faces.   

We had a go at recreating this famous piece of art ourselves...

Art work inspired by Margaret Godfrey

In Art this week, we have based our art work on the artist Margaret Godfrey. First, we drew a cross section of a volcano in pencil. We then traced over the lines using oil pastel. After that, we used water colours to paint the volcano and sky, thinking carefully about our choice of colour, to add effect.

Here is some of our art work inspired by Margaret Godfrey.
