Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed their visit from an artist today. We learned how to use watercolours effectively to create rainforest plants in the style of Henri Rousseau.
Fantastic colour mixing and art skills shown as the children recreated Henri Rousseaus painting ‘Surprised’
Today our School Councillors acted as Ambassors of our school when they visited Calf Close Home to present some gifts and well wishes to the residents.
Year 4 investigated the flowering plant today using our microscopes.
Year 4 have been learning how to read semibreve musical notation.
They worked very hard to keep the 4 beat time, the concentration was electric !
Today in Year 4s science lesson the children moved on to investigating the effects more batteries or bulbs had on the brightness of the bulbs. The children planned and carried out the experiment independently. They used their knowledge of circuits to check why things werent working and worked well as a team to share responsibilities and solve problems.
A Great day in Year 4 as the children successfully made circuits using lots of different components.
We made lovley community links with Calf Close residential home last year when pupils from our choir visited the residents to sing Christmas songs.
This year the children participated in the Hearts for Home project. Each child designed a heart with a personal message of kindness or Seasons greeting!
Today members of our school council, delivered the hearts to our friends and wished them a Happy Christmas!
Today in Year 4 we have been learning about the different layers of soil. The children loved seperating the soil into its 5 different layers, looking closely at it through a microscope (we found a worm) and carrying out an experiment which will allow us to see all 5 layers for ourselves inside our jars.
Children from Valley View and Hedworthfield Primary Schools produced some stunning art work to commerate Remembrance Day 2020.
The art work was placed at the Cenotaph in Monkton Village.
We will remember them.
