Sycamore Class

P4C

Today we thought about the question, " Do you think it is important to consider other people's feeling when you say something about them?"   Two cards, one with more important and the other with less important, were put on the floor and the children could stand anywhere in between them.  Some children wanted to explain why they stood where they did and at any time anyone could change their mind and move.  They said that a comment about someone could hurt their feelings, as they get older they need to be more aware of others, how would they feel to be on the other end, it is okay to have opinions but do you have to say it aloud? 

  The children really did think about any response they gave and in the end the common consensus was that it is important to consider the feelings of others when saying something.

Sky Skills Studio visit

On Thursday, 24th October, Sycamore class travelled to Osterley, London to Sky Studios, by coach.  The purpose of the visit was to make a news report linked to our Science topic on Space.  We chose to research "returning to the Moon".  For the week preceding the visit, the class researched the American Artemis Programme, the building of Gateway - a space station orbiting the Moon and the possibility of travelling to Mars.  We thought about what roles we wished to do - reporter in the studio, outside reporters, eye witnesses and experts.  

Once at the studios, Sky experts helped each group to write, record, edit and include images of their news report. The children were able to choose outfits for the people in front of the camera to wear and they really enjoyed learning how the cameras worked.

Everyone was given a copy of the final report.  

Battle of Britain

Our Music topic this half term, has been about the Battle of Britain.  We used a clip from the film The Battle of Britain as inspiration and created our own percussive music to accompany a short clip.  During the last lesson we performed our compositions to each other.  

Our Art this term is sketching and drawing.  We began by looking at the work of Edward Wadsworth.  He created the Vorticist Alphabet.  He belonged to the a British Art movement called "Vorticism."  Its aim was to convey the chaos and noise of modern life.  Sycamore class went outside into the playground and field to look for strong lines and shapes created by humans.  Using these images we created our own alphabet. 

Our first English Learning journey was based on the book "Lost Words". The book contains beautiful illustrations and acrostic poems about British flora and fauna. One of the first activities was to match images to their names.
