In Year four we have started a new Design topic all about moving mechanisms. We will be learning how to make four different pop-up mechanisms and use them to design a simple pop-up book. The first mechanism we practiced is the V-fold or mouth mechanism and we used it to make these fantastic monsters with moving mouths!
In art we have been exploring the work of famous artists from all over the world including Pablo Picasso, Giuseppe Archimboldo and Piet Mondrian. We used ‘Circles’ by Wassily Kandinsky to inspire these beautiful trees.
In PSHE the children have been sorting the children’s rights cards into most important, important and least important and having a great discussion – is it a need or a want? Is that important?
