Autumn Term 2020

We began our year by looking at the artist Andy Warhol.  

We explored his style of art, looking at the colours and how images are repeated.

 

We then learnt how to take photographs before turning them into POP ART

Linked to our science we have evaluated and made healthy dips as well as deciding which were the best dippers!

 

To link to our People Topic involves learning about Remarkable Women.

As part of our topic we had a surprise visit from Florence Nightingale.  We first found out about her life before looking at artefacts from a hospital in Victorian times.  Then we were transported back in time to the Crimean War where we became nurses and porters working in a hospital in Scutari.  We had a great time as well as learning lots.

Look at our fantastic learning logs - all about Nurturing Nurses.

Spring Term 2020

 As part of out topic we made Arctic shelters, first using spaghetti so we could explore how to make structures strong and stable.  Then we learnt how to use saws to safely cut wood to create the shelters frame before marking and measuring fabric to make the covering.

We also went to Nell Bank to explore the grounds before finding Mother Owl and her Owl Babies.

Finally look at our fantastic 'Explorers' Learning Logs.
