As part of our Expressive Arts MILE this half term, Dosbarth Ffawydden had to create a piece of volcano art work, using the equipment given. These are our "Volcanoes in a bag."
They look fab!
Taking inspiration from Rob Osborne's, Volcano Pop Art.
We explored different textures and decided which made the best rubbings for our designs.
We learnt about onomatopoeia.
We created our own pop art, onomatopoeia vocabulary,using Word in our ICT session.
Then we put all these elements together and created our amazing Volcano pictures!!
Six different groups and six different ways to erupt a volcano, which one worked the best?
We have had a fantastic first half term back.
We have been artists, scientists, mathematicians and poets as well as being a part of the SCRIBBLEBOY fanclub!!
The children have all been amazing and so enthusiastic about everything we have done!
Dosbarth Ffawydden have been amazing at settling back in to our 'NEW NORMAL.'
As well as taking ideas from Cornerstones, the children have been thinking hard about the activities they would like to plan for this half term. We can keep adding to our planning wall as the term goes on so feel free to keep thinking of more ideas!!
Please find our topic web for this term, below.
Hello to you all!
For those of you who don't know me, my name is Mrs Prince and I am the Year 4 teacher this year. You will also get to know Mrs Hards who is our teaching assistant.
We are very excited to be welcoming you all back in September, after the strange way we ended last year, but we can't wait to get to know you all.
So, you may have already gathered that we will be known as Dosbarth Ffawydden in September and just to get you into the swing of things, our first topic will be Urban Pioneers!
This is an Expressive Arts based topic but we will cover a wide range of the curriculum through the topic and also look forward to planning some of the activities with you, so please get thinking and bring all of your ideas in September!
These are some of the things we are hoping to look at in the first half term. We’ll investigate urban art including graffiti, murals and statues. We’ll write an information leaflet about our town. Using digital mapping tools, we’ll identify the streets and buildings. We’ll investigate cities around the world and find out how they’ve changed over time. We’ll have questions about where family members work or places you often visit, and we’ll present the data we have collected. As part of our science and technology work, we'll find out how light is used to keep people safe at night.
Until then, have a fantastic Summer and I look forward to hearing all your news in September.
Summer Term 1, 2020
In preparation for our topic next half term, MIGHTY METALS. Please feel free to have a look at these ideas.
Spring Term 2, 2020
Welcome back! We hope you have enjoyed your break.
Our topic for this half term is Myths and Legends!
This half term Dosbarth Collen will be trialling some new ways of learning in preparation for the new curriculum. The children will have more ownership over their learning and be involved with some of the planning.
We are also lucky enough to be involved with an Arts Council for Wales project (in partnership with Newbridge-On-Wye Primary School), where the children will have the opportunity to work with creative practitioners and lots of new skills.
Spring Term 2020.
Welcome back! hope you all had a good break.
This half term our topic is 'Blue Abyss.'
We have many exciting things planned, including a trip to an aquarium and finding out more information about our adopted class dolphin, which the children have named Bubbles. We have sponsored a dolphin for the year and are looking forward to receiving more information about our dolphin throughout the year!
The children have already started work on this and topic, they have so many wonderful ideas and have come up with their own table names to do with the ocean.
Welcome back, We hope you had a good half term break!
We are really looking forward to this half terms topic Scrumdiddlyumptious! It will be lots of fun looking at loads of delicious things.
In Art we have been looking at the Artist Acrimbold, We then created portraits coping his style! We enjoyed using the fruit and vegetables as body parts.
This half term our topic will be Tribe! We will look at the Celts and how they lived. We will be going on a trip to St Fagans to see how the Celts lived!
On Wednesday 18th September 2019, We had a brilliant day at St Fagans Museum, where we learnt about the Celts for our topic!
We looked at a Warrior graveyard and found out a lot of information about the remains in the grave and what they symbolised for the Deceased Celtic Warrior! We also had a look around a Iron age farmstead and a roundhouse, the children were brilliant at answering and asking relevant questions about the Celts. We had a go at weaving it was a lot harder than it looked. Mrs Prince and Mrs Hards were so impressed Dosbarth Collen that we had time for a go in the park be getting on the bus home!! Busy but amazing day.
