A very warm welcome to the one and only...4SB

Here you will be able to find our termly newsletters and keep up to date with the exciting learning which we are doing in class.

Year 4 have been having a ball throughout arts week! We were inspired by the painting “Allegory of War” by Jan Brueghel, who painted in the Baroque era. We spotted majestic birds in the painting, so we made cushions with designs of eagles and gargoyles, using a Flour Paste Resist technique, and also used simple outlines of birds of prey and watercolour pencils to create bird paintings. We saw skulls in our picture and so we put together a model of a skull, papier mached it and painted on Day of the Dead designs. Because we saw a wolf and a lion in the picture, we made massive whole class collages of these animals using tissue paper and our collaging skills. We have all agreed that we wish it every week was arts week!
