Wow! I hope you join us in saying a huge well done to all the children and their amazing playing, reading music and exemplary behaviour as they performed their new skills with the brass instruments on Tuesday. We hope you enjoyed listening to the children as we are so proud of them all!
They have had a busy week with three spectacular carol concerts. A special thank you to Chloe, Emilia, Aaliyah, James, Kayla, Bethany, Eunice, Neve, Izzy and Zac who helped take us through the Christmas story with their super readings.
For your information – On Wednesday 8th January we will be having a ‘Red, White and Blue day’. The children are welcome to wear anything that is red, white or blue. They will enjoy a day to introduce our new topic for the first half of the spring term.
We hope you have a fabulous Christmas and a Happy New Year. We are back on Tuesday 7th January.
Year 3 Team
As part of our DT work this term, Year 4 have made some bread. We tried a basic bread roll last week and evaluated what went well and what we would improve.
Today we have baked our own bread roll, adding an ingredient of choice. Our bread looked amazing and tasted delicious. We have developed our kneading technique and our bread rolls rose much better on our second bake. Here are some photos of our bread rolls:-
We would like to start by saying thank you to all the parents and family members who attended the children’s outcome this morning. The children were so proud showcasing their work and certainly enjoyed the quiz as they were able to retrieve the knowledge they have gained through this project.
North American Weaving
During our project, the children learned that there are or were many indigenous tribes within North America such as the Inuit, the Mayans and the Navajo. Each child chose a tribe to focus on and researched this tribe in order to gain knowledge about the materials and colours which would have been traditional in their tribe. From this, they made a mood board and designed a weaving pattern before gathering the raw materials to create their very own weave. The results are stunning – take a look!
Illustrating Picture Maps
This term, the children studied the artist Mizielinski by observing how they use line and colour in their picture maps. The children practised using line drawings and were taught how to use line to create texture. In order to create their own map, the children voted for a country of North America which interested them and then used what they had learned across their other subjects to inform their illustrations.
What a wonderful term we have had – we wish you all an enjoyable and festive Christmas.
