Art

During our Art lessons we have been sketching and painting our own industrial landscapes. Industrial landscapes include objects such as houses, factories and built areas of buildings. Some of us used matchsticks to resemble people within our landscapes. L.S. Lowry is a famous artist that draws and paints industrial landscapes, this was our inspiration.

“I really enjoyed doing art this week as painting the industrial landscapes was fun and interesting because I like finding out about different artists,” explained Morgan.

P4C

During P4C we were challenged to conjure up a series of questions based on an image depicting a tiger hugging a man. The question we decided to focus on as a class was “What would be the consequence of killing an animal?” This question raised a lot of thoughts, some of these were to do with the guilt of killing animals and how humans had become the ultimate predators. Both issues that we felt could be interesting to enquire into further.

“P4C was enjoyable because we were able to share opinions and give reasons to agree and disagree with each other, raising some interesting points of view,” exclaimed Tuco.

Maths

Our focus in maths this week was short multiplication using both two and three digit numbers. One of the tasks we completed used various clues in order to discover the answer to a large multiplication question. Two of the methods we used were column multiplication and mental methods.

“I enjoyed short multiplication because I like breaking down problems in order to work them out. I found the mental methods easy to use when completing the questions,” Joshua said excitedly.
