Art week continues

On Thursday, the year 4 children looked at the poems/ spells from The Lost Words book. We then explored what a cinquain is – a poem with 5 lines and a set number of syllables per line. The children have written some beautiful  cinquain spells about a flower or plant of their choice. Please do have a closer look this afternoon…in our Art Week display.

First day of Art Week!

This morning we had an assembly about art week. This year’s theme is Art and Science. A lady from ‘Fun Science’ came and showed us some of her favourite experiments. When she added acid and alcholine to water it produced bubbles then exploded!she had bubbles on her hand and got a lighter then she set the bubbles on fire and the fire went out.We are all excited for art week.

Later on worked on our Wondersnaps that will be displayed on Friday. These are detailed photos that wehave looked closely at. We have explored things in nature.

This afternoon we were introduced to the book ‘The Lost Words’ by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris. We will take inspiration from this book during the week – looking at both the beautiful illustrations and spells.

We have started to sketch the item in our photograph but will continue with these later in the week.

Spanish cafe!

This afternoon we all entered a Spanish cafe and were taught how to order from a menu in Spanish. Firstly we had to learn the Spanish for food and drink items. After that, we learnt how to say useful phrases which we would use in a cafe. We all had a go at being a waiter/waitress and a customer. Following this, we even tried writing our conversations in Spanish. It was great fun!

Fantastic fiver challenge

You may be wondering what the fiver challenge is. The fiver challenge is a challenge where you make a product out of ingredients for £5.First we thought up four different ideas for the product and chose the best one. Next we designed four logos and chose the best one. After that we wrote a elevator pitch. We will be asked to speak about our product for 60 seconds to a group of adults from the local community on a Friday.
