Green Room – Year 3 / 4
Viking Longboat Figureheads – As part of our history investigation into whether Vikings had longboats with dragons figureheads on, we’ve started a mini art topic drawing our own figureheads with charcoal! Here are some pictures of us practising with the charcoal!
Musical Instruments! – Whilst the Year 4s are swimming, the Year 3s are making some junk model musical instruments. We started last week, stay tuned to see our final results!
Making Mosaics – To finish our Romans topic, we got creative making some Roman mosaics! We planned our designs, glued our tiles on our squares and then grouted them. The end result looked so great, we had an impromptu art gallery after school!
Stop Motion Animation – We had great fun learning about stop motion animation and experimenting with making our own videos! We’re really looking forward to doing some more at home for our homework!
Sound and Pitch – As part of our science topic on sound, we experimented making vibrations with rubber bands and cups/tin cans. We then went on to investigate pitch and how to make sounds higher and lower.
Boudicca Battle Cry – After writing up our Battle Cries in Literacy, we decided to deliver them in true Celtic style – with woad all over our faces! We look pretty fierce, do we not?
Time and Tide Trip – Roman Invasion – We had a fantastic trip to Time and Tide for their Roman Invasion/Iceni day. We met some Iceni members and learned about the unfair way they had been treated by the Romans following the death of their King. We also looked into the future with the Celtic Druid and tried to determine whether the Iceni would be successful if they took on fighting the Romans or not. We also went undercover to learn about the Roman fighting techniques and how the Romans lived. We had such a fun day and learned loads!
Volcano Eruption Homework – At home, some of us chose to make our own volcanoes to erupt! We used bicarbonate of soda, washing up liquid and vinegar and talked about how this was a chemical reaction. We really enjoyed watching everyone’s volcanoes erupt!
Volcano Debate – To finish our topic on volcanoes, we had a class debate. We got into role as either housing developers, scientists and locals and debated the merits and possible issues with building a new housing development near the base of a volcano. At the end we even took a class vote – ayes to the left and nays to the right! We really got into it!
Scratch Topic – We had great fun this term programming on Scratch. We learnt about Sprites, movements, backgrounds and sounds! It was so much fun and we can’t wait to do some more coding soon!
Cave Paintings – We have been experimenting with different natural resources getting ready to make our cave paintings!
