October 2019 - Art

 

Continuing on our learning of the Victorian artist William Morris from earlier in the term, we have been creating our own prints, replicating a repeating pattern with a symmetrical design.  Firstly, we designed our print, then created the printing block using polystyrene tiles and a variety of other materials.  We are all very proud of all of our designs and below are just a few to share with you.

October 2019 - Outstanding Homework

Before and during half term, the children in Norwich were set some interesting homework.  The task was to create an information booklet about a fascinating Victorian invention that has had a significant impact on the world and create a miniature model of the invention. To help complete this project we could look at home for any books that could help them, visit the school library or the local library and research from a wide range of internet sources. Our learning had to be well presented and full of interesting information and the model had to be small enough to add to our class display.  We have ALL created amazing prototypes of our inventions and written some fantastic facts. 

Thank you to all family members who have supported the children with their projects as they were very proud to share their learning and we were extremely proud of everyone – MERITS FOR ALL!

September 2019 - Science

As part of our Science this term, we have been learning about electricity and circuits.  We started by consolidating our existing knowledge of how to make a complete circuit and how to affect the brightness of a bulb.  Next, we will be learning the different scientific symbols used to match each of the components within a circuit to help us draw our own circuits accurately.

September 2019 - Art

This term in art, we are investigating the works of the artist William Morris.  Firstly, we looked at a variety of his prints and the influences in his life.  We wrote about the different features of his prints and the various patterns he used.  Finally, we chose one of his designs and continued the pattern.
