This term in Science, we have been identifying and describing different sources of sound in and around school. We have been investigating how sources of sound vibrate, creating sound.
Elle-May- “I really enjoyed playing the different instruments and hearing what sounds they made.”
Stephen- “I really enjoyed playing the triangle, it vibrated when I hit it.”
Learning from Home
This term we have had some fantastic learning from home. Look at some of the model creation some of the children have made.
Kyle- “I really enjoy building using Lego, I made a dragon on my own.”
Annalea- “I made a Rainforest at home using a wood, felt and paint. It was a lot of fun.”
Last week, Year 4 took part in a Judo taster session. As part of the session, the children had the opportunity to learn how to safely carry out a range of Judo moves on their partner. The children had great fun throughout the session.
Emma- “I really enjoyed learning Judo moves and being able to throw my partner onto the floor safely.”
Jay- “It was so much fun doing Judo and learning what Judo is.”
Art - Drawing
As part of our Art lesson, before sketching our own animals from the Rainforest we practised drawing different textures using different types of art pencils.
Angel- “I really liked drawing with the thick HB pencil it felt really soft on the sketch paper.”
Jay- “I liked using the art pencils as they left different textures on the paper depending on how hard I pressed.”
Art - Paper Mache
As part of our whole school Art project, this term we are creating our own sculptures liked to our Rainforest topic. We decided as a class to make our sculptures out of paper mache. It was a lot of fun starting to create the different elements of the sculpture in small groups.
Emma- “It was really cold putting my hands into the mixture to be able to create my tree sculpture.”
Fanta- “It was really hard creating the different layers of the Rainforest but it was fun doing it with my friends.”
