Lights, Camera, Action!

 

Our topic for Autumn 2 is centered around light. We are going to be investigating what light is, how we see light and what the absence of light is (any guesses..?). Also, we will be looking at the size of shadows and what changes it.

 

In ICT, we are going to making our own short film by filming it in groups and even editing it using an Apple Mac. We will also be filming our anti-bullying film so we will get lots of practice at being superstars before we complete our own.

 

In art, we will become inspired by the work of Andy Warhol. We will be creating our repeated patterns by using lino-printing which is something that we haven'd done before in year 3!

 

In Geography, we are going to be studying the United Kingdom and looking at the different regions- where would be perfect for filming different movies?

 

We are also  lucky enough to be going to the cinema on Monday 11th December to see Paddington bear and learning about what is in the projector room. 

 

This half term, we also have BOXING on a TUESDAY afternoon and GYMNASTICS on a WEDNESDAY afternoon. Don't forget your correct PE kit!

 

We have also started rehearsing our contributions to the Carol Service at the church at Christmas; it's going to come around fast this year!

We are also going to be designing and building our own shelters and dancing to our own compositions of Celtic music!
