Welcome to Barbados Class!

See our Weekly Timetable:

SummerTerm 2 - Topic: Habitat Hunters

Click here to see this terms 'Topic Web'.

Our topic this half term is “Habitat Hunters”. As part of our study we will be looking different habitats around the world and how human's have impacted these habitats over time. We will then focus specifically on habitats within our local area, such as; riverbanks, the beach, ponds, our gardens. We will be learning about what animals/ minibeasts live here, what they need to survive and what other creatures threaten their survival. In Design Technology we will be creating our own bird houses. These will be able to go home with the children at the end of summer so they can watch, help and support the nature in their locality. In English we will also be writing our own narratives from the perspective of a minibeasts which will articulate humans as villains highlighting their impact on nature. This writing hopes to celebrate the children's learning by incorporating all language features learnt over the course of year 4!

The Learning Pit:

'The Learning Pit' celebrates when children stumble upon a misconception in their learning. It encourages individuals to persevere and independently climb 'out of the pit' by either recognising their mistake and fixing it OR by researching to find out the answer. Other children or adults may give individuals the tools to help them climb out of their pit. However, the quest will remain on the individual to succeed and conquer their mountain.

We created Pop-Art using Onomatopoeia!

We had our first Djembe Drumming Lesson!

It was such lovely weather so we took our music learning outside!

Our Art and Design!

To begin our printing journey, we focused and experimented with the technique of Direct Printing.

Definition of Direct Printing:

The process of printing textiles and natural objects by layering them in ink and pressing them with  rollers onto a piece of paper to visualise their unique patterns. 

After understanding the definition, we took our discovery outside our year 4 classroom to collect a range of leaves. We then independently used these within lesson to create our own Direct Printing art work.

Look how great they turned out!
