Thank you!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone in Room 6 for working so hard this year. It was so nice to see so many of you at our picnic.

Thank you for all your amazing cards and kind gifts.

Have a lovely summer holiday!

Mrs Gwyther

Monday 13th July

It is the last week of term and today it is our picnic day. I am really looking forward to seeing lots of you at 12:30!

Activity suggestions for the whole week.

I am going to put a list of activity suggestions for the whole week. Please choose which activities you would like to do. You do not need to do them all.

  • If you would like to continue with the White Rose Maths lessons then please do. Mrs Garcia has put the lessons for the week on the school news page.
  • Research a famous person you are inspired by. Write their life story.
  • How many star jumps can you do in a minute? You could draw a bar graph to show your highest daily total.
  • Take part in a P.E. session with Joe Wicks.
  • Have a go at the square of numbers challenge. Your challenge is to put the numbers 1 to 8 into the circles so that the four calculations are correct.

  • Play a board game.
  • Bake a cake with an adult. Your challenge then is to write the instructions for it, so I can try to make it in the Summer holidays!

English

For art today, you are going to be drawing a family member or pet so for English I thought you could write an acrostic poem using the name of the person you are going to be drawing later. Remember, in an acrostic poem the first letter of each line spells a word. The word is the subject of the poem.

For example if you were writing a poem about Peter, you would set your poem up like this:

Probably my favourite friend
Everyone recognises his laugh

Art Week Day 4

The artist for today is Henri Matisse.

Henri Matisse was a French artist known for his use of colour and his original ideas. Matisse started to create large scale paper collages. He called the technique ‘painting with scissors’.

Have a go at creating your own cut out collages. Use simple shapes and bright colours. Cut and arrange your pieces before you start sticking!

Take part in the Yr 4 English lesson about writing headlines using alliteration, on the BBC Bitesize website. Then, your challenge is to write some headlines for a newspaper article about the artist for today, Andy Goldsworthy.

The artist for today is Andy Goldsworthy.

As you can see, Andy Goldsworthy produces artwork using natural materials such as flowers, leaves, pebbles, twigs, grass etc.

If you can, go into your garden and create a piece of art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy.

If you are unable to go into your garden today, please recycle some materials that you have at home, to create a piece of art.

Art Week Day 2

Andy Warhol was famous for exploring every day and familiar objects in his work, using brands such as Coco-Cola and Campbell’s Soup. He liked the idea of taking ordinary things, for example cereal or bananas, and turning them into art. He did this with his famous print of a tomato soup can.

 

 

Have a go at designing your own. It can be a real soup flavour or an imaginary one!
