Welcome to Year 4
Class Teacher: Miss N Livermore
This term will see Year 4 journey into the mind of an artist – in particular an expert in collage. We will be trying to answer the question “How can I become an expert in collage to showcase our village.”
To achieve this goal, the children will research into what collage is and how to create one as well as looking at our own local environment. We have already embarked on a ‘Welly Walk’ around Shaldon to see what we have in our own village and to get ideas of what we might want to portray later on in the term.
Throughout the journey, we shall have visitors from local colleges and 6th forms to introduce to the idea of collage and keeping an artist journal as well as a workshop from a local artist. We will be covering many different skills such as, colour, line, shape, tone and finally looking at mosaics to create a new piece to go outside the school.
In our writing, we shall be looking at informational leaflets, poetry and setting descriptions. Through this we will look at tenses (perfect past and present), apostrophes (plural and singular), complex sentences and figurative language.
P.E will be on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so please ensure children have their kit in those days. Homework will be set on a Friday and expected in on a Wednesday.
