As part of our topic 'Misty Mountain Sierra' we looked at charcoal drawings of the Rocky Mountains. We watched a video by Gene Shaw, a designer and illustrator, and followed his step-by-step instructions to create our own charcoal mountain ranges. We think they look pretty good!
Parent Shared Afternoon - 5.2.20
We loved having our grown ups in class this afternoon to help us with our art work. Our project this term is Misty Mountain Sierra and we created shadow pictures of mountains. We used watercolours to create a sunset background, and then used black paper to create the mountains. It was a lovely afternoon with lots of parents, grandparents and siblings coming in to school to support us with our work.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to join us in class 6 today.
Pictures of our master pieces to follow - when they are dry!
Fantastic homework from Mackenzie, Domenick and Kassidi for our new project.
Well done guys!
I am very excited to be back working in Y3/4, both with new children and those who I had the pleasure of last year. Our new project this term is 'Misty Mountain Sierra' and we will be focusing on the big question of: Can I reach the summit?
The project has a geography focus, although pupils will still receive lessons within all curriculum subjects. Please see the attached curriculum map.

Spooky Sagas Competition
Last year every child in class 6 had the opportunity to write their own 'Spooky Saga' to be entered into a competition.
The best stories received were looked over by a panel of authors and the most creative and imaginative stories were chosen to be published. The 'Young Writers Est' received in excess of 22,000 entries and 8 children in our class have been chosen!
A big well done to everyone who took part and I look forward to reading those 8 stories in a published book very soon!
A reminder to parents that the permission slips and the attached information for the story to be published in the book needs to be sent back by the 15th of February.
