As part of our geography project about Rivers, Year 4 had an exciting visit to Blashford Lakes Study Centre. Children took measurements in the river, participated in kick sampling and explored aquatic life. They also saw a waterworks in order to help them explore where water comes from and to think of ways they can save water.
In Art, the children learnt about Roman art. They looked at Roman busts, sculptures and mosaics. They created their own mosaic patterns too. Then, the children looked at the different Roman coins and then designed and created their own Roman coin out of clay. Once their coin had been in the kiln, the children painted them either bronze, silver or gold. We were really impressed with the designs they created.
In DT, children learnt about where our food comes from. Then, we tasted biscuits to see which flavours and textures we preferred before designing and making our own Easter inspired biscuits. The children created biscuits of all different shapes and sizes and added a variety of different flavours from ginger to chocolate chip. Their biscuits were a great success and they thoroughly enjoyed eating them!
