Welcome to 4SA

Autumn 1

In our first few days back at school we focused on Art work for our Landscapes project.

As well as using oil pastels to create a class replica of one of David Hockney’s images, we have also been making some pictures for the forthcoming school art exhibition.

Inspired by the work of illustrator Jan Pienkowski we created marble backgrounds with black silhouettes of imaginary landscapes.  We used cutting knives and lots of patience to cut out our intricate designs!

Here are just a couple of the stunning results… to see more head along to the Bessemer Art Exhibition on 20th and 21st October!

   Here we are re-enacting the Battle of Bosworth as part of our Tudors topic.

We went on a brilliant trip to the Tower of London where we saw fantastic artefacts like the Crown Jewels and saw the site of the executions of three of Henry VIII’s wives.

We made Tudor Roses out of clay and then painted them for display.

Autumn 2

This term our topic is World War II.  We went on a trip to the Imperial War Museum where we sat in a real Anderson Shelter and learnt lots about the Home Front.

During our topic we used Now Press Play to understand more about life in London during World War II.  Our interactive journey included an air raid, evacuation and Digging for Victory!

In DT this term with designed our own Anderson Shelters in groups. We used cardboard and corrugated cardboard to make them look realistic.

 We then painted them and added details such as vegetable garden patches.

We wish you all a Merry Christmas, Season’s Greetings and a peaceful holiday.

See you in 2016!

Spring Term 1

This term our topic is The Environment, we will be looking at where we live, using atlases to locate where we live as well as how we can protect the wider environment. We have already visited the Southwark re-cycling centre.

 Doodle Day

Today (5th February) was Doodle Day and we did some doodles in class and in assembly to raise awareness and money for Epilepsy Action.  Many thanks for your donations.

Here we are during assembly, warming up and doodling en masse!

In class we then did our picture consequences in groups: you draw one part of the body then turn the page over and swap so the next person can’t see what you have drawn.  You can then create some really fun and wacky drawings!

Please remember to hand topic homework in next week ūüôā
