Welcome back!

We have had an amazing first week back.

In our RE lesson, we have been think about what we are committed to in and out of school and how we show our commitment l

During our topic lessons, we have been learning about why the building of Baghdad was a significant event.

Art Project

During our art lessons, we have been focusing on a number of famous artists including: Matisse, Vincent Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso, Magritte, Yayoi Kusama and Bridget Riley.

We chose one artist, researched the artist’s style and created work inspired by them.

English

This week, we have been writing a narrative based on the events discussed in our text, ‘The Highwayman’.

We had to write a setting description and character description as well as describing events which led The Highwayman explaining his feelings towards Bess.

Music Week

We have been looking and the world famous composer, John Williams during Music Week.

John Williams has created some of the most iconic film scores of all time, scoring more than a hundred films, many of which were directed by Steven Spielberg.

We listened to some famous film scores to see if we were able to recognise them, all composed by John Williams.

We developed a new appreciation of how music affects films and how it impacts on our emotions.

Art

In our art lessons, we have been sketching patterns based on William Morris artwork and have explored and used a variety of whittling, rolling and pressing techniques.

William Morris believed that art should be present in everyday objects such as textiles and homeware and everyone should be able to have arts and crafts in their life.

We designed our very own wallpaper designs to showcase our understanding of the types of patterns he created.

English

This week, we have been gathering information and vocabulary about life in a Victorian workhouse.

We wrote a letter from a child in a workhouse explaining the living conditions there.

Premier League Draw Together

Premier League Primary Stars is inviting children aged 5 to 11 across England and Wales to take part in a brand new art challenge in support of the Premier League’s No Room For Racism initiative.

We created a piece of artwork expressing what allyship and inclusion means to us.

Have a look at some of our entries.

English

We have been writing a character description of Jim from the novel ‘Street Child’ written by Berlie Doherty.

We wrote about his appearance, his past and his behaviour.
