Art Exhibition and Lantern Making


We have been very creative in Class 4 this term. Inspired by our trip to the Tate Modern and the Giacometti exhibition in September, we have been working hard with Mrs Costello to create our own works of art. We are all really proud of the pieces we have produced and think our art is of a high standard! We were proud to display it in the YHPS Art Exhibition on 23rd of November and very encouraged by all the positive feedback we received. You can see some examples below.




Last Monday we had a fantastic break from our classroom routine. Together with Class 3, we spent the day at the Yardley Arts centre making lanterns. It was a great opportunity for us to learn new skills, work together and do something different and creative. Under the instruction of local artists Simon Tipping and Clare Abbat, we made lanterns in the shape of angels. This was quite a complicated process as we needed to bend and shape the willow frame before covering our creations in paper and latex glue.


‘It was quite tricky but it was fun too’ said Heather. While Harley enthused ‘It was fantastic!’






In English this term, we have been exploring the book ‘Tuesday’ by David Wiesner. We started by ‘interrogating’ pictures from the book and discussing our thoughts in small groups. It was really interesting to look at the pictures individually and then try to piece together the story. Lottie’s group in particular had some very original ideas about the picture below.



This week we have been thinking about descriptive writing based on the book. We had fun mapping the model text as you can see! We will use the model text to inspire us when we start our own pieces of descriptive writing in a couple of weeks.
