An exciting visitor has been in school, to start our new topic, who we had so much fun with! Author, C.S. Clifford, who wrote the book ‘Walking With The Hood’, came into give us a fantastic writing workshop. We had the opportunity to learn about what it was like to be an author and find out what inspired him to write the book. He then challenged us write the start of our own Legend Tale and find out more about Robin Hood.
WE have been learning about natural artist Andy Goldsworthy. To help us, year 4 did lots of research and presented their findings to us. We then had to create mind maps about him and everything we had learnt.
A trip to the woods!
On a very cold and frosty Monday afternoon during the topic, we ventured to the local woods. We had lots of fun trying to recreate the Andy Goldsworthy art we had been learning about. We used natural materials that we found in the surroundings, such as, leaves, moss and twigs. Take a look at our creations!
