Rainforest Artwork Sapphire Class

Sapphire class were inspired by the work of Andrew Golsworthy.  We created works of art using natural, sustainable objects linked to the rainforest.  We thought carefully about the location and natural materials we used.  We were very proud of our final pieces of work!

Hemel Hempstead:

 

Do you have any old maps, pictures or videos of Hemel from the past? Our topic this term is all about Hemel from the old to the new and even thinking about the future of the town. 

What did it look like?

When did it become a town? 

Have you always lived in Hemel?

Are you excited for the new parks? 

How may people travel around in Hemel years from now? 

Feel free to carry out any research at home and bring it into school! Miss Duggan would be very interested in reading or seeing any information you have and there may even be a sticker on offer for your hard work!

Christmas Fair (Christmas Timbers) Advert

Still image for this video
The children worked together throughout the day to design, create and advertise a product to sell at the Christmas fair. The children chose their own designs and set the pricing themselves. We then worked together to create adverts and posters to encourage customers to our stall at the Christmas fair this Friday! See you there!

Reasoning Anglo-Saxon artefacts - What is it made of, what is it made for and is there something like it today? 

 

Group 1- Looks like a jar used to put memories in, something like we have today a vase or pot, made out of clay. 

-Burial pot- ashes 

 

Group 2 - Two objects 

Made out of zinc or copper- metal, thought it was bull rings could have been an earring, oh it's a pin! We have them today broach. 

 

I think these are like clippers, nail clippers, doctors tools, made out of gold, metal, leather. We have something like it today. 

-Tweezers, nail cleaners, clean out your ears 

 

Group 3- We thought it was made out of stone and clay, decorated to look nice, used for memories, flowers or putting food, we have something like it today looks like a beaker. 

-Food pot

 

Group 4- We were very confused, we thought it could have been a tooth or tusk of an animal, there's big animals with big teeth but we think it would be too big to be a tooth. No woolly mammoths in Saxon times, used for drinking. It's a horn. Made of bone. Something like it today small glass.

-Drinking cup

 

Group 5- The balls are made out of clay, bag sheep skin wool or leather deer skin, used for money as they are different sizes. But the Anglo saxons did have coins. That changes everything so we think it might be a toy but we're not sure how you'd play. Not for bouncing. 

-Marbles games

We have been looking at open ended questions that have more than one answer for example:

 

What would have happened if Arthur did not want to be King?

What would have happened if Kay pulled the sword from the stone?

Would the story have changed if Merlin was evil?

 

Can you see a pattern between the multiples of 99 and 9?

If you know how to multiply by ten what else do you know?

How many pennies would you need to reach the height of the school?

 

How many answers can you come up with?

Using reasoning at home...
