Christmas Cards

Here are our Christmas cards to the class.  

Dance with Olivia

In dance this week, in honour of Diwali, we looked at Indian Dance. We learnt some the gestures used in Bharatanatyam (South Indian Dance) and Kathak (North Indian Dance) Both dance styles are derived from the Hindu religion. Each hand gesture has it’s own meaning and can be used to tell a story through dance.

Remembrance

We have commemorated Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day in class by creating poppies using oil pastels in the style of the artist Georgia O’Keefe Year 4 Poppy Art.  The children have also created their own poems about Remembrance.  

Here is the display we added to the school poppy altar display with Florence’s poem in the centre.

History Projects on the Romans

The children have shared some super research on the Romans that they presented to the class. I’ll post photos of the work on here this week.  Take a look at Orla’s powerpoint, which includes a Roman make-up tutorial from Orla!  Orla’s Presentation

World Space Week

We have celebrated World Space Week by looking at the technology used in space and careers in this area of science.  This links well with our geography topic on ‘Earning a Living’.  We watched a webcast from Tech We Can

Then the class designed a space scene – take a look at Our Space art work

We have enjoyed reading ‘Look Up’ by Nathan Byron- Waterstones Children’s Book of the Year.  It is the story of a girl called Rocket who dreams of becoming an astronaut like her inspiration, Mae Jemison

Collective worship

Groups of children planning their own collective worship to share with the class and writing their own prayers at home using our class prayer book. 

Playtime

Enjoying the Autumn sunshine!

We have built in the Daily Mile into our school day since returning back to school.  The aim is to try and run a mile by walking, jogging or running for fifteen minutes.
