Park View 4U

 

 

On Tuesday, Year 4 visited Park View in Lytham to learn about Living Things and their habitats.

We travelled by train, which only added to the fun we had, and spent our time exploring the different plants and animals that live at Park View.  With the help of our very knowledgeable leader Julie, the children found many different species of insects and after lunch, we made our favourite ones out of clay and the natural materials that we could find in the environment.

After that, the sun had come out so we played in the park and in the sand and water…. some children got VERY wet despite Mrs Pickles asking them to stay dry!

It was an excellent visit and all the children were beautifully behaved. In fact, they all want to go back for more!

 

Classifying Living Things in Science

This afternoon in science, we have been learning to classify (sort or group) living things using branching keys.  The children had to think of questions about the different characteristics of the living things to be able to separate and classify them. Here are some of their questions:

Can it fly?

Does it give birth to live young?

Is it a mammal?

The children had to classify the following living things:

Here’s some of our amazing work:

Art inspired by Kandinsky

Today in Year 4, the children have been creating their own art work in the style of celebrated Russian artist, Wassily Kandinsky.  They have used shapes and colours in an abstract way to represent something real.  It was pretty tricky at first not to paint objects as they really are, so they practised in their skills books first until they were happy with their designs.  They then pencil drew their design onto larger paper and used poster colours to complete their paintings.

Once the paintings are completed and dry, we will post some of our work on here to show what they look like.

Here are a few examples of Kandinsky’s paintings….what do you think?
