Latest Green class works of art

After a long week of assessments we decided to get back to the serious subject of art! We decided to create a forest scene and use layers of watercolour to create depth and mysteriousness.The children produced some incredible work…some of the best paintings they have done. 007 008 009 010 011 012 013 014 015 016 017 018 019 020 021 022  024 025 026

RE – Hinduism

We have been studying Hinduism this term in class. We were lucky enough to have a special guest from Year 4 come to share her knowledge of Hinduism with us as well as some of the traditions this amazing religion has.

Literacy/art mask making – Pebble In My Pocket

The children worked in pairs looking at text from different periods of time throughout the history of the world. They then made masks of different animals which existed at different times and explained what the world was like when they lived.

This was part of our literacy work to deepen our understanding of The Pebble In My Pocket.

Literacy – The Pebble In My Pocket

For the last two weeks of term we studied the beautiful book – The Pebble In My Pocket, a picture book showing a pebble’s journey through the history of the world.

Here they are using drama to act out some of the scenes in the book. The children are performing as prehistoric animals, cavemen and women and even the pebble itself, as it tumbles down the side of a volcano.

Watercolour landscapes

The children in Green Class have gained a lot of experience with art over the last few terms…especially with the tricky techniques of colour washing and perspective. We are trying to learn that less means more!

Here we worked on a spectacular mountain-by-a-lake scene.

Some of the children are also holding their shark paintings we did the following week.

They are using real, high quality water colour paper for the first time!099098 097096095093092091090089088087086085081083082080076075074073072070094

Fraction investigations

Children find learning about fractions very tricky, so we need to spend quite a lot of time investigating them and seeing how many ways we can understand them. Here we are trying to order them.
