Art Day- Mosaic Masters
This week, we started exploring mosaics: looking at how they have changed/developed over time and how and where we see them in our everyday life. The children were enthusiastic to share where they had seen examples of mosaics and were impressed to understand that buildings could be Mosaics when we looked at the work of 'Gaudi'. The children explored the colour, design and detail of mosaics over time before choosing their own mosaic to unpick further.
The children ended the day, using their knowledge, to design their own mosaic. Watch this space for their finished product!!
Year 4 have been enjoying their music lessons with Sing Education. This half term they are learning to play the recorder. The children were able to listen carefully and follow instructions to be able to play different notes, they were then able to begin creatings a sequence of notes for their peers to repeat.
Writing - Instructions
This week the children have been writing their own set of instructions, focusing on using adverbials and being clear and specific with their steps. Many children chose to write their set of instructions linked to Halloween, making their own fancy dress costume.
