4AC 2017/18

Welcome to 4AC’s Class Page!

Autumn Term 1

During ‘Art Week’ we have been developing our skills and techniques with different mediums, including paint and oil pastels.

As the theme this year was portraits, we took inspiration from a famous one-eared artist in one of our pieces of work – can you guess who from our work below?

Because our Autumn term’s topic is ‘The Vicious Vikings’, we thought it would be a shame not to try our hand at some scary Viking self portraits!

 In Science we are learning about the digestive system. Our first investigation is already underway!

Which drink is most damaging to our teeth? We are going to find out. The cups in the image above contain an egg, and various different liquids, such as: cola, orange juice, milk, and an energy drink. Which do you think will cause most damaging to the egg? This should prove which drink is worst for our teeth. Make sure you ask us how it goes!

 

This term we visited the British Museum to support our learning about the Vikings – look on the school twitter feed for a photo of our class!
We saw lots of objects from Viking hoards… a bit like the one we created ourselves!

We also saw an interesting version of the story Beowulf performed at the Unicorn Theatre.

 

We created these colourful information posters to show what we have learnt in science.

We went on the first of our workshops to Dulwich Picture Gallery this term. Did you know the gallery is celebrating its 200th Birthday this year?


Here are some boat models we created both in class and for our topic homework.

 
Autumn Term 2

We have been continuing our project with the Dulwich Picture Gallery. This time we went on a local area history walk, made some art and attended a story telling session.

To support our learning about World War 2, we visited the Imperial War Museum:
