Spring Term 2019
L S Lowry
In Art, year 4 have been learning about Lawrence Stephen Lowry who was mainly an industrial landscape artist. They made a fact file about his life. Did you know that he was a tax inspector and didn't start painting until he retired? Or that he only used five colours in his paintings? They did some wonderful pencil sketches, a lovely seascape and finished with some amazing industrial scenes.

Gallery from 2017-2018 Year Group
Year 4 along with the rest of Key Stage 2, enjoyed this themed afternoon during which they learnt the vocabulary for days of the week and for weather conditions as well as other activities including restaurant role play.
World Cup Day
We all enjoyed our whole school World Cup themed day and particularly the mini tournament which we were fortunate enough to win!
World Book Day
Visit to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery
As part of this term's topic about Ancient Egypt we enjoyed a very
"hands on" experience at the museum.
We learnt about mummification and some of the rituals involved as the Ancient Egyptians held ceremonies to celebrate the end of life. Music was involved in the ceremonies and we had a chance to play some of the instruments.
The elaborate headdresses represent the headdresses worn by the Gods.
Christmas Art Day
Purple4Polio Crocus Planting
Year 4 really enjoyed taking their part in this Rotary event, part of their
campaign to eradicate polio.
