Spring Term 2024

In Art this half term, Year 3 and 4 have been using the work of sculptor Antony Caro as inspiration for our own sculpture. We have looked at examples of his work and experimented with different materials and joining techniques.  We used the simple of idea of playgrounds to create our own sculptures. The outcomes were fantastic!

In Music we have been fortunate to be part of the Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust “First Access” project. We have spent 10 weeks with experienced music teacher and drummer James, learning all about dynamics, tempo, pulse and rhythm of music, and have put together some super compositions on the South African Djembe drums. A wonderful opportunity which we all really enjoyed!

In Science, we have been learning all about the human digestive system and how it works. We spent some time creating collages to strengthen our understanding of the different organs and their order, before learning about the functions of each part.

Autumn Term 2023

Centaur class have worked extremely hard during the Autumn term. They have loved their History unit on the Romans, and have enjoyed welcoming a visitor into school for a fully hands on and practical experience day. During this, the children were able to handle many artefacts, take part in re-enactments and participate in drama activities linked to significant Roman people.

In their English lessons, Year 3 and 4 have further developed their understanding of Roman times through studying the myth of Romulus and Remus, the twins who are believed to have founded Rome. They wrote their own myths, and also explored a fictional diary from the perspective of a Roman slave.

In their Art unit, the children have been refining their skills of painting and colour mixing to create tones and shades. They have applied this to a range of still life drawings, exploring composition and proportion. This was not an easy task!
