We have been getting messy and creative in art! We have been learning to experiment with tools and techniques, focussing on foam board printing. First, we learnt about printing and about the different types of printing that are used. Before creating our own stencil, we practised our sketching techniques and designed our very own Tudor house. Once our teacher had checked our designs, we started to use a pencil to draw them onto the foamboard, before pressing our pencil into the foamboard to create the stencil. After, we had created our stencil, it was time to print! We used a roller and ink to print onto our sketch books. These are our finished designs; we are very proud of them!
We have started to learn more about adventure stories in English. On Monday we listened to the story Katie in London., which we all really enjoyed. After reading the story we have started to create and design our very own characters and settings. Next week, we will start to write our very own adventure stories. We cannot wait to share them with you!
In PSHE we have been learning about ways to safe at home. We looked at dangers in our homes that we need to be aware of such electrics, knives and sharp tools, certain chemicals, and medicines. We then completed a quiz and voted on which items are safe and unsafe.
