ART WEEK 2022-2023

 

After a fabulous trip to the Tata Modern on Tuesday 8th November, Year 6 were inspired to create some artwork using new techniques.  Our artist and inspiration for the week was an English textiles artist named Debbie Smyth.  We used the same techniques that she does in order to create artwork that is important to us.

Please enjoy perusing the gallery of work.

Dunstan Class have had great fun this term investigating forces.  From Fizz Pop Rockets to Balloon Car Racers we have predicted the outcome of investigations and adapted our methods to make things more efficient.

Welcome to the Year 5 class page!

To bring to an end our fantastic English topic on Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, Year 5 had a great trip to Warner Bros Studio to visit the sets where they filmed the motion pictures. They got to see first hand the costumes, sets and props that were used in creating the films, as well as the special effects and 'movie magic' that helped bring this wonderful story to life. It was a brilliant day!

In our computing lesson, we started looking at computational thinking! We looked at how computers use clear instructions to create the desired output. We learnt about decomposition, patterns, algorithms and abstraction!

The Battle of the Brutes!

 

This term, we are reading Michael Morpurgo's adaptation of the Anglo-Saxon tale of 'Beowulf'!

 

We have been looking at how to use various forms of figurative language to develop our description of the monster, Grendel.

 

We summarised the key events of the text and are currently writing newspaper reports to tell everyone about the momentous battle between Beowulf and Grendel... stay tuned to see who will win!

Egyptian Tombs Making

 

Following on from our learning on the Ancient Egyptians, we designed and created our own Egyptian tombs! We studied the format of the tombs and designed our own ones. We used a range of materials to create our tombs and include objects that represent the treasures that were stored with them!

Welcome to our Year 3 page

Year Three have been learning all about life in the Stone Age. We have looked at the Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Nesolithic periods, Stone Age houses and tools. The children even made some Stone Age art using natural materials including sticks, mud, charcoal and berries to look like cave paintings.
Year Three have been talking about how we can think more positively. They didn't say things they couldn't do. Instead they wrote things down that they couldn't do...YET! Some children have even posted their target snowballs into our YETI's mouth to celebrate achieving them!
In Term 3, Year Three were learning about chemical reactions in Science. (No teachers were harmed in the making of this video!)

Year Three loved reading the book 'Oliver and the Seawigs'. They made their own Seawig and wrote instructions for how to make one. They held a 'Night of the Seawig' competition. Daisy won and will be the judge of next years competition!

Year three enjoyed reading the book 'Oliver and the Seawigs' and even made their own Seawigs for the Night of the Seawig competition. They wrote instructions for how to make your own Seawig.

Year Three have been looking at the Artist Claude Monet. We found out all about his life and explored some of his paintings; especially ones with water in. The children experimented with pastels to recreate on of his paintings and then went on to mixing water colour paints to create different shades. They all had a go at creating their own version of his famous 'Japanese Bridge' over waterlilies and created some beautiful final pieces which are now up on display in the school.

We enjoyed our Sports Day this morning. Everyone tried they’re best and supported their team mates. Bristol had quite a monopoly in the running races but it was York who triumphed overall, despite being plagued by the flies that always particularly like their yellow t-shirts!
We had a great day in Rochester. We did an I-Spy trail in the Cathedral and learned about Baptism. We had our lunch by the castle and then did some observational drawings. 
Some photos from our visit to Morrison’s in Faversham. We tried cheeses from different countries, made our own knotted rolls in the bakery and looked at the products from the World Food aisles. 
Out and about in our Science lesson, looking closely at leaves to help us identify different plants. 
Can you recognise who is jumping into the foam pit at Faversham gym?
We have been really enjoying our work on “The Bog Baby” by Jeanne Willis. We made our own Bog Babies but they went missing but then we found them in the secret garden. 
In Art we have been learning about hot and cold colours. Have a look at our fabulous Hot Dogs and Cool Cats!

To start our Science Week, Michael from Creepy Claws brought some exciting animals for us to see and touch and learn about.

Look at our amazing castle models! 

We have used them in Maths to describe the 3d shapes they are built from and we have used them in Science to discuss the different materials they are constructed from.

Thank you to all the parents who came in yesterday to help with our Castle building afternoon. The children have been enjoying learning about Castles and were rightly proud of their models which included some very sophisticated constructions. Some even had working drawbridges!
Some pictures from our Christingle making with Prayer Stations this morning.
Party time!!
Alisa and Lana did a super job of making a Nativity scene with silhouettes on a lightbox as part of our Infant Christmas Service. We used the same Nativity figures on the special hats we made to wear to church.
Here are some pictures from our fabulous Nativity Play. You were all brilliant!

Art Week!

We have had a very busy Art Week and have produced lots of work and tried lots of new techniques. The week took inspiration from a famous painting from the National Gallery called "Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump" by Joseph Wright of Derby. Here we are making a "Freeze Frame" of the picture.

We noticed the moon in the painting and made our own pictures of moons and planets using stencils and chalk, carefully blending to make them look spherical. We also learned about the phases of the moon.
