We have been very excited to work with ceramic artist Taz Pollard this half-term.
Inspired by our topic ‘Scribble’, graffiti and historical artists such as Jackson Pollock, we have been creating ceramic structures. First we used different materials to splat colours onto large pieces of clay. After letting them dry, we cut the pieces to make them into structures!
After they are fired, we will add other colours and details using glaze.

Today, we have been celebrating World Book Day! We have also been doing some ‘extreme’ reading at home and came into school dressed as our favourite book characters.
Read the children’s comment below about their character choices!

This week, we enjoyed a fantastic ‘Scribble’ inspired day in Bristol! First we met Rob from ‘WHERETHEWALL’. He took us on a tour of the city to look at different Graffiti and Street Art. He helped us learn about the different artists and how they created their pieces.
We saw some enormous pieces spray painted on the side of walls and even tiny pieces painted on chewy gum on the floor. We got to see street art pieces by artists such as Banksy, Cheo, JPS, Mac and many more!
Next, we were taken to an old police station which has been converted to workshop spaces for artists. We experimented with spray paints, doodled on a doddle wall, spray painted our own stencils and created our own tag signatures.
After that, we enjoyed a short walk to the Mshed Museum. We enjoyed exploring the museum, learning more about Bristol artists and seeing a Banksy piece up close.

The pupils built some towers to test how different materials can be used in different ways. Molly’s and Emily’s tower was the highest – well done!

Today,Year 4 children took part in a tennis festival at Tarka Tennis. It was a fantastic event which all the children enjoyed. They practiced lots of different skills such as forehand and backhand passing, footwork skills, races and rally games. They really enjoyed the ‘beat the teacher’ game. Here are some photos from the day:

This week, we received an exciting visit from a female Viking from Jorvik in Northern England. We were able to ask many questions to help us learn about what her life was like 1000 years ago. We learnt about Viking homes, jobs, families, games and much more. We also saw lots of interesting artefacts.
