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.

A big well done to our Star Writers and Star Mathematicians this week! Sophie, Coby and Ronnie wrote some impressive formal letters to the RSPCA explaining why a dog (from our class novel) should not be taken on a round the world voyage on a boat. Some very convincing arguments! Daniel K, Paris and Taylan also worked extremely hard in Maths this week, demonstrating a good understanding of the formal methods of multiplication and division. Well done!

Extreme Earth

Our topic this term is 'Extreme  Earth'. During this topic, the children will discover what makes our earth extreme! We will be finding out about different extreme weather conditions and will base our learning around this. Our book focus this term is 'Kensuke's Kingdom', which the children are thoroughly enjoying reading at the moment. They have already written some fantastic formal letters to the RSPCA, explaining why a dog (from 'Kensuke's Kingdom') should not be taken on a voyage around the world on a boat. The children have also written some different poetry forms inspired by volcanoes, and have worked collaboratively to create their own paper mache volcanoes, which we will be 'erupting' later on this week.

We have been focusing on multiplication and division in Maths, and will be moving on to fractions later on this term. All of the children have now been set up with a Times Table Rockstar account. They are given opportunities to practice their times tables at school, but are also encouraged to log in and practice them at home too! The more confident the children are with their times tables, the  more successful they will be with their fraction work.

As you are probably aware, there has been a change in the way that homework is set. Each child has been given a homework book, which has a homework list stuck in the front of it. They must choose which homework activities they are going to complete, and return their books to school (with the completed homework) by the end of half term (9th February).

Jaguar class now have PE on Monday and Tuesday each week. PE kits will remain at school and will be sent home each half term to be washed. Please ensure that your child has the correct kit.
