Lion Class 2020-2021

Welcome to Lion Class.

This term we are learning about Castles. We will have P.E. on a Tuesday afternoon and Forest School on a Friday afternoon. 

Over the last few weeks, we have created our own castle pictures. First of all, we mixed our own paints to create a sunset background. Then we used different materials to collage a moat and a hill for our castle to sit on. Finally we drew, cut out and stuck our castle onto our picture. We are so proud of our artwork!

This week in History, we pretended to be spies for Lord Fuddy Duddy. He wanted us to spy on a local castle and retrieve features of this castle. We drew the castle for him and identified the exterior features.

This week in arts week, we have been looking at the theme circus. Today we made our own spiral artwork using crayons, felt tips and paper plates.

This week we have been looking at measure. We really enjoyed measuring objects around the classroom using rulers.

Last week we practised drawing lines, shapes, forms and texture using our sketch pencils. We noticed that if we pressed harder, the line would be darker. We then used this to support us in drawing our own castles. Here are some of our amazing sketches.
