Introducing Kandinsky

Today was our first art lesson of the new term. 

We are beginning to learn about Russian born painter Wassily Kandinsky. 

 He was an abstract artist so his paintings didn’t look exactly like what they were meant to be. 

 We compared two of Kandinsky’s famous works and discussed images we could see.
Ideas of what could be seen included a mouse, buildings, mountains, a face, objects disappearing into a black hole and Alice falling down the rabbit hole into Wonderland.

After discussing primary and secondary colours, as well as the use of shade and tint we added colour to a Kandinsky picture.

Having fun coding

3M all love using the IT equipment.   This afternoon we coded on the ipads using Discovery Coding.
 Then we used what we had learned to programme the Pro Bots.
  This is the first time we have used Pro Bots and it was a little tricky at first.    

Examining Poetry

3M have got straight back to work this morning. We started our new topic in English which is Poetry.   Here we are hard at work examining different poems and explaining what made us like them.

Making Christmas Cards

Isaac and Freddie here. 
On Wednesday 20th December we made amazing Christmas cards.  

 First, we all had our photo taken and we could choose whether to pull a silly face or a normal one. 
Then we got to customise our pictures on the ipad to add Christmas effects.  We then got a piece of red card and a green piece of paper which we folded into a fan. We cut the fan into strips to make the parts of a Christmas tree and stuck them into the card. This made a pop up Christmas tree. We then decorated the inside of the card with stars and presents. Once the inside of the card was finished we stuck our customised photo onto the front. 

 It was hard work but we hope you like the cards.

Singing Carols at Amber Court

Hi it’s Keira from 3m and today, 22nd December 2017, Imogen and I went to sing at Amber Court (a nursing home) along with some of Mrs Jemson’s choir pupils. 

We sang five songs including Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer/Jingle Bells, Away in a Manger, Shine Away, I wish it could be Christmas Every Day and Love Shone Down. 

 We enjoyed performing. 
It was a very nice day. When we arrived back at school we all thanked Mrs Jemson.

Year 3 and 4 Carol Concert

Hi, I’m Imogen. I’m in 3M. 

Today we did a carol concert. 
It took lots of rehearsals and there were 180 children there.  

 The songs we sang were Shine Away, Away in a Manger, Love Shone Down, I wish it could be Christmas Every Day, Somewhere only we know and O Little Town of Bethlehem. We also sang a Christmas song in Spanish called Mi Burrito Sabanero. 

 My favourite song was Shine Away.  
 It was so good, flabbergasting and amazing. 
I hope every parent enjoyed it because I know every child did.
