This term in Art we are making clay houses. Here is what we have done so far.
First we recalled the different elements of art including line, shape, pattern and texture.
Then we went out and sketched a Victorian house on Nelgarde Road. We looked carefully, thinking about the elements of art, and capturing detail.
Next we experimented with clay. We used different clay tools pattern the clay. We made different shapes by cutting the clay. We made a pinch pot and tried out the scratch and slip technique to join pieces of clay.
Finally we created our own clay house. We used guide sticks to roll out the clay to an even thickness (a new skills for today). Then we used the skills we had practised last week. We had to look at our sketch to remember all the details as we worked.
teaching of Maths has changed a lot over the years and we are aware that your
child will be learning in very different ways to how you were taught at school!
Your child will be coming home with a ‘Parents Guide to Maths’ for their year group, outlining the expectations for the year, what they will be taught and how you can support their understanding at home.
The leaflet covers all the areas of Maths, with examples and diagrams to help you. You can download the leaflets for all the year groups below.
