Multiplication and Division

We can use mathematical vocabulary when talking about equal groups. We can use stem sentences to describe groups and we can record repeated addition number sentences before counting in multiples of 2s, 5s or 10s to find the total number of objects. 

Visit to The Grace Darling Museum

We had an amazing time when we visited the Grace Darling museum in Bamburgh, Northumberland.  We got to see the actual coble boat which Grace used to rescue the nine passengers of the Forfarshire ship who were stranded on the rocks off Longstone Island.  We saw many artefacts in the museum like a dress which Grace wore and a lock of her hair, along with the actual shawl that Grace wore during the famous rescue! There were many ornaments and various objects from the Darling family lighthouse and a journal from William Darling, Grace's Father, which detailed events of the rescue.  We recreated the story of Grace Darling's rescue mission with a Victorian shadow puppet show which we great! We performed this in groups for the rest of our class. Finally, we walked down to the beach and saw Longstone Island in the distance where Grace used to live. What a fun-packed day we all had!

Pop Art

We have studied Pop Art and some of the artwork from famous artists like Andy Warhol.  We know that pop art is bold, bright and eye-catching and that many pop artists used repetition in their work.  We know how to make secondary colours by mixing primary colours together, we know that some colours complement each other through studying a colour wheel and we know that pop artists often chose to create art using everyday objects  and portraits of famous people.  We decided to produce self-portraits in the style of Andy Warhol using repetition and complementary colours.
