This Week’s Learning

Art Week: We began the week by explaining who Andy Goldsworthy is and talking about his art work. We then explored his work practically by creating our own sculpture in groups using a variety of natural materials such as pebbles, grass and leaves. After, we compared the work of Andy Goldsworthy and Henri Rousseau by looking at the similarities and differences of them as artists and their work. Then we planned a design for our Andy Goldsworthy inspired art work and began making our own leaves to use. Finally, we created our own piece of art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy.

Maths: We began the week by measuring and comparing temperatures. We then went on to solve different temperature problems. After, we compared capacity and investigated measuring in millilitres.

Homework and Spellings

The children have been set an activity that is linked to art week. They will need to draw a picture in the style of Andy Goldsworthy, label it and write some sentences to explain what materials they would use to create this and why. Please return this by Thursday 20th June at the latest. Children have a new list of spellings to take home this week, which focus on spelling different homophones. The spelling quiz will be on Friday 21st June. Please keep your spelling sheets at home to practise.
