BIRCH - Y3/Y4
Anti Bullying Week
We watched a video about drawing bald eagles. We all drew really good pictures and it was fun. I like eagles because they are fast and are great at catching fish. They really are ‘King of the birds’. Ollie P
Today we sketched a bald eagle with Mrs Quaile. I found sketching the feathers a bit hard. In the end, Mrs Quaile came to help me, then I started to get the hang of it. If you draw an eagle, don’t just draw the feathers dark brown, add a bit of yellow or light brown. Arabella
Commemorating Remembrance Day
The clay was cold and messy. It got all over my fingers. I put little holes in my fossil with a fork. My favourite part was when it was finished. It looked millions of years old! Abigail
We got clay and rolled it out like a sausage. Then we curled it like an ammonite. We got our hands messy making the design. Every ammonite is different. Some had spots on and some had curled lines. I enjoyed getting my hands dirty. Albie
Rocks, Relics and Rumbles
We have been sorting and classifying rocks . We have looked at the differences between igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. We particularly looked at whether rocks were shiny or dull, did they have any crystals or layers and were they permeable or impermeable.
In Art, we sketched ammonites and examined some different fossils.
