This week, the children have blown me away with their final pieces of artwork, inspired by that of Romero Britto's!

They have mixed patterns with vibrant colours and emulated the cubism-style approach that Britto uses, to create some images that really pop with colour and they look so effective!

Here are some pictures of completed pieces, that will be displayed next week, outside the classroom:

In Geography, they have been looking at the different layers of the Amazon Rainforest. Each child created our own posters with the labelled layers on, and attached pop-out descriptions of each layer. They had rainforest music on in the background, to give them a feel of what sounds you might hear.

Here is some of our work:

In Maths, year 4 have been classifying triangles and quadrilaterals, using a classification key (we will be using classification keys in science, next week too!) This was really tricky but they did a good job! They then got each other to think of a shape and used their classification keys to see if their questions worked!

In RE they re-enacted the story of Pentecost, as we celebrate this feast of Sunday. I was, yet again, blown away by the acting skills in this class! Each group retold the story in such great details through and active approach. This will stand them in good stead for the written piece of work on it, next week.

Reading-this class are doing really well with their reading and taking quizzes. However, it has come to my attention that some children are not getting their reading records signed at home, when they read. This means they are not getting stickers, and my record looks as though they are not reading at home all. Please can all children ensure they are making a record of every time they read at home-I want to give out lots of certificates next week!

Thank you!
