Autumn Term 1 Topic: Meet the Greeks
Click here to see this terms 'Topic Web'.
Our topic this half term is “Meet the Greeks”. We will begin by uncovering the timeline of Ancient Greece which will lead us into delving deeper into famous cities and Kings, Queens and rulers that lived here. The Greeks believed in multiple God and Goddesses who controlled everything in their lives and the environment around them. There was a god for every aspect of their lives - We will be researching into this to find out more.
During this topic, we will also be looking into Greek Vases. Through this insight we will have the opportunity of designing and creating our own traditional Greek vase and using our artistic knowledge to decorate these using 3 different types of printing!

We had our first Djembe Drumming Lesson!
It was such lovely weather so we took our music learning outside!
We had our first Art and Design lesson!
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!
