Year 4 Art - Piet Mondrain

This term the children in Year 4 have been studying the art of Piet Mondrain. First, they used their chromebooks to carry out research  about the artist, becoming familiar with the work that he created.

Year 4 are now aware that Mondrain only used primary colours which are: red, yellow and blue.

"Mondrain also used plenty of white within his work, separated by black straight lines." Jessica

Within their sketch books the children have managed to produce their own Modrain art work, making sure that they consider key words such as composition and placement. Using crayons and pieces of back paper they created their own masterpiece!

Both Year 4 classes have now begun to transfer their design on to their very own white t-shirt, which they will be able to wear in art until they leave school. All children will have the chance to use paint and felt tips in the forthcoming lessons. They are very excited by this as they will be the first year group that have one! This means that Year 4 have the chance to get messy without ruining their uniform!

Year 3 - Scientists


The Year 3 children have been scientists this week as they continue to explore forces. They have been exploring magnets and building cars propelled by balloons. During the lesson on magnets the children have been reflective. George said "Look this magnet is so strong it can pick up the pencil pot!" and Jacob said "You need two different ends of the magnet for them to attract".



In every magnet there is a magnetic field. This magnetic field is invisible and it is the force that you can feel when magnets in your hands attract or repel. The ends of the magnet are called the north and south poles.

In Hazel Class, pupils worked in teams to build a car propelled by balloon power! Taking the friction of the floor into account, students used skewers, straws, cds and tape to construct their models...




There were some fantastic results and certainly a lot of resilience during this task!





Both Hazel and Sequoia have had some great experiences in science recently and we hope they have been telling you all about them!
Have a fun half-term, and we'll see you when you get back. If there's one thing you do over the break, start a new book and who knows? You might even finish it in a week!
Remember to sign your reading records too.
Miss Taylor, Mr Nicol, Mrs Marchant, and Mrs Bradley :)
