To launch our topic of "The Great Fire Of London" we made bread. It was a very hard work because we had to mix and knead it by hand. Luckily, the bread smelt and tasted delicious.
We looked at ourselves in a photograph and noticed the different shapes we could see. Then, we lightly sketched our face and body and thought about the shape of the different features on our faces. After that, we mixed orange, white and green to make the perfect skin colour. Next, we mixed red and green to make brown for our hair colour. Finally, we carefully painted ourselves.
We looked at lots of portraits by Picasso and found out the he wanted to paint more then one profile at a time. We then looked at the “Weeping Woman” and saw how he used different shapes to represent different features. This inspired us to create our own Picasso style portraits.
On Wednesday, 4th October we visited Lacon Childe and took part in a Multi sports event. The event was run by Lacon Childe children and they taught us how to play lots of different sports. We played football, rugby, hockey and tennis. We had a lovely time.
We were very lucky because we were allowed to visit St. Mary’s Church in Cleobury Mortimer. We discovered that it had changed shape many times over the years with parts of it being nearly 1000 years old. We saw a whole cupboard full of special clothes that were worn at different times of the year. The stained glass windows helped the people that could not speak Latin understand the readings. St Mary’s also has painting on the walls to keep the people interested. We found a mistake on the big stained glass window. Do you know where it is?
We looked carefully at the castle on our playground and noticed that it had been built on top of a hill. Then we climbed to the top of the castle and realised that we could see into the distance. It also made it really easy to see the attackers and they were out of breath when they reached the castle because they had to climb up the hill.
Start of Term
We really enjoyed playing board games with our parents and carers when they came into class at the start of term. We loved showing them around our new classroom and introducing our parents to Mrs Mountjoy and Mrs Skellern. We also had baked cakes and were very excited to eat them when we got home.
We were learning all about algorithms and discovered that an algorithm was an instruction.
We went outside and practised creating algorithms to direct our partner to different points on the playground. When the algorithm went wrong, we had to “de-bug” the algorithm.
