Coronation Artwork

This week, the year 4 children's coronation artwork was exhibited in the school hall as part of the Bridgewater Primary King Charles III art exhibition. 

4 Wiltshire created an enlarged version of a postage stamp as a whole class. Each member of the class created one part of the overall piece of art, filling it with sketches that related to the coronation, the royal family, London and the UK, all in the style of Stephen Wiltshire. They used pens and graded drawing pencils to draw the sketches to achieve the shading effect on the stamp image. Having each focussed on a small part, the children were amazed to see it come together as one piece of art and the overall effect of their combined work.

4 Milhazes challenged themselves to sketch detailed, individual front facing portraits of King Charles. They then used inspiration from Beatriz Milhazes' colourful, abstract paintings with geometric shapes, to create vibrant backgrounds for their portraits. 

4 Fraser were inspired by their class artist to use contrasting colours to create their King Charles portraits. The children were excited when, following a post of their work by the school on Twitter, Henry Fraser himself complimented them on on their artwork.

Year 4 have had a wonderful time at the Rock UK Frontier Centre this week. The children have enjoyed taking part in a variety of activities. In bushcraft, the children learned how to safely make fires and build shelters. They have challenged themselves on the climbing walls, worked together as a team paddling canoes and developed their archery skills. In team dynamics, they completed a series of challenges, considering the best ways to approach the challenges and working together to complete them. In the evening, the children enjoyed a bonfire, which included toasting and eating marshmallows, and dancing with their friends at the disco.

In science this term, the children in year 4 have been learning about and classifying animals. This week, the children were learning about invertebrates and considering the different habitats in which they live. They explored our swale habitat at school, searching for some of the invertebrates that live there. They were excited to find and identify different creatures including pond snails and waterlouse.



Trip to Abington Park Museum

This week, year 4 had a wonderful time learning more about the Ancient Egyptians on a school trip to Abington Park Museum. Whilst there, the children went to hieroglyphics school to learn about the Ancient Egyptian form of writing using pictures or symbols. The children were amazed to discover that there were around 800 different hieroglyphs in total, that Ancient Egyptian writing has no spaces between the words or punctuation, and that it can be written left to right, right to left or vertically. They then wrote their names in hieroglyphics on papyrus using a reed pen, similar to the materials the Ancient Egyptian scribes would have used. 

The children also expanded their knowledge on the funeral rites of the Ancient Egyptians, considering the reasons behind some of the Ancient Egyptian funerary practices. They then became experimental archaeologists, re-enacting the ‘Opening of the Mouth Ceremony’ using drama and replica artefacts at the museum.
