Black History Month Workshop

On Thursday 22nd October 2020, Year 4 had a virtual workshop with Lorna Gayle. She spoke to the children more about Olive Morris. They found it interesting to learn that Olive Morris stood up for a Nigerian Diplomat when she was only 16. The police were arresting the man because he drove a nice car. We had a great afternoon.

Black History

We’ve turned into a class of ACTIVISTS who enjoy ART and who want to help our COMMUNITY this week!! We’ve focussed on these three words and learn’t about their importaince in making a change. We looked at how they link into each other. Our inspiration was OLIVE MORRIS who fought for black equality and womens rights in South London, we even had a virtual meeting with Lorna who knew lots about her and taught us to spread positivity and have inner strength in ourselves. In writing we wrote diary entries around the book ‘Gregory Cool’ by Caroline Binch, which is about a young boy who is sent to Tobago to visit his family for the summer.

World Mental Health Day

Dear Year 4,

Today is World Mental Health Day! We will look at this more next week.

Over the last few weeks, we have learned about healthy lifestyles in PSHE lessons. We know how to keep our bodies healthy, but do we know to keep our minds healthy?

We have created a book list full of stories that can support you with managing your mental health: Mental Health Book List Sep 2020

Remember- you are not alone! Everyone has good and bad days.

Let us know if you have any recommendations.

Best wishes,

The Year 4 Team

Self-Portraits

 

In the first week, Year 4 talked a lot about our own self-identity.

We looked at the artist Pablo Picasso, who is famous for painting many different self-portraits.

From this, we took inspiration to draw our own abstract portraits.

Look at how amazing they are.
