Good morning Robinson class.
We have had another busy week of learning.
In Art, we have been looking at portraits and the artist Picasso. We looked at his blue period and how the pictures made us feel when they were painted in shades of blue. We then looked at some of his other pieces in different colours and discussed how these colours made us feel. The children drew a portrait of themselves and then picked a colour to represent their mood. Everyone tried really hard and it was great to see the final portraits.
In Forest school, we made salt dough and then created monster faces in the trees. We had to think carefully about the natural resources we could find in the forest and how we could use the different shapes to create the monster. The children all worked together to create a den. They had to think about where to connect the ropes to make sure the den had three sides.
In Science we have been learning about our senses. This week we were looking at our ears and listening. We went on a sound walk around school to see what we could hear. Then we discussed how sound travels using vibrations and sound waves. We watched rice bounce on the drum to show the vibrations from sound. Finally, the children made their own paper cup telephones and were fascinated at how well they could hear each other at the other end.
On Fridays in Maths, we have been learning to measure. The children chose a variety of non-standard units of measure and objects to investigate in the classroom. We ended the lesson with estimating and then investigating how many cubes long our classmates are. It was great fun.
Well done for a great week Robinson class.
