This week, Year 4 have had fun gardening. We made the most of all the autumnal leaves to create art. One group created a heart around a tree showing love for God’s creation, whilst another group created SSAS with leaves demonstrating unity. Both teams worked collaboratively, deciding on their design, collecting and clearing leaves. They also learned about the life cycle of a bulb before planting daffodil bulbs alongside the path from Camp Road. We are sure it will make a beautiful welcome in the spring.
In addition, we took the opportunity to celebrate our child-led collective worship outside. The children chose the story of Daniel being saved from the Lions as they liked the idea that God would care for them even when things looked bad. They asked their class to go forth with the mission to invite someone who may be feeling lonely to play with them. Earlier, we had joined with Year 3 in an assembly for Remembrance Day when we held a minute’s silence and prayed for those who have fallen or suffered as a result of war, including service men and women and civilians. The children were truly thoughtful and respectful, later sharing stories from their families.
We have been drawing 3-dimensional shapes in Art and used shape, shade and tone to draw still art of fruit. They concentrated carefully to produce their best work, as you can see below.
