What a fantastic day for Year 4B!frown

As part of our World Around Us topic on the rainforest we have been learning about how plants grow in these regions.

Today we made a terrarium which will let us observe how condensation forms droplets on water at the top of the bottle then rains down on the plants below.

This term we are learning about World War 2.  We have already been on an educational visit to Palace Stables in Armagh, where we learned about what it was like for children who were evacuated from Belfast.  We found out how people bought food during the war using ration cards.  We also got to meet and American G.I. who told us what it was like to be in the army during World War 2. We were told about air raids and how important it was to carry a gas mask everywhere! We learned a great deal from this trip and now we are looking forward to our evacuee day later in the term.

The Peoples Park in Portadown is being renovated. The council has offered local schools the opportunity to work with artists to create banners to decorated the park for the grand opening.

Our class spent the day with a local artist called Debbie who helped us to create individual pictures which will then be used to form the banner.

 

We learned a lot about the different mediums artist work with.  Debbie taught us how to create a marble effect on paper.  She explained to us how artists come up with their ideas. We learned how using contrasting colours in pictures can have a brilliant effect on the final image.

 

Debbie used the colourful pictures by Chegall as inspiration for the pieces we created in class.

 

We used the idea of colourful Carp as our starting point.

Debbie has taken all our finished pieces away and she is going to put them all together to make the banner.  This will then be printed so that all the images are protected from weather damage when they are displayed outside.

Roald Dahl was a fantastic author who wrote many amazing children's books. 

We celebrated Roald Dahl Day by coming to school dressed up as a character from one of his books. 

We spent time finding out about his life out how he came up with the ideas for his stories.

In class we reading George's Marvellous Medicine. In this story a boy called George has to deal with a particularly mean and selfish grandmother.  We have spent time thinking about how different our grandmothers are compared to George's grandmother.
