MONET INSPIRED IMPRESSIONIST LANDSCAPES (ART WEEK)
Using Monet's 'Water Lillies' as inspiration we each created our own impressionist landscapes. For the background of our pieces we used ready mixed paint which allowed us to blend our colours together and for our water lillies we used acrylic paint as it adds texture and has more vibrancy.
We have been learning the rules of cricket and practicing our technique resulting in a class game umpired by Mr Evans.
We each investigated paper spinners and how to adjust our designs to create more or less aerodynamic models to test.
Using our research about different types of bread we each created our own product and designed the packaging.
Throughout home learning Year 4 took part in 'Daily Challenges' promoting their creative, ingenious and problem solving skills.
Name Items - Can you guess who?

A massive THANK YOU from Year 4 to Ms Bannister, Ms Pisula and Ms Bradley for our delicious Christmas Lunch!
In our Living Things and their habitats science topic we have been grouping, sorting and classifying all living things according to their characteristics and features. Using this knowledge we went outside into the playground to find and identify different invertebrates.
Our Design and Technology topic this half term is Quizzical Quilting. Mrs Taylor was kind enough to bring in some quilts she had made for the class to look at and see each stage of the quilting process.
We have started looking at how to create our own animations.
We each made the simplest form of animation we just an image of a bird and a cage.
We hope you enjoy our end of half-term curriculum showcase!
This term we are fortunate enough to have Mr Eastwood teaching us how to play the ukulele.
Our Art and Design focus this half term has been on the work of William Morris a well known wallpaper designer and artist.

To practice the technique of block printing we are using potatoes before carving and etching our polystyrene tiles.
Part of our PE lessons this half term has been focusing on our football skills - controlling the ball, making accurate passes, working as a team and techniques to intercept and gain control from opponents.
We have thoroughly enjoyed learning and tweaking our own games using Scratch thinking about accessibility, appeal and being user friendly.
