Year 4 have had such a brilliant couple of weeks celebrating our colour project. We launched the topic by designing our own face paint designs- then we got to bring them to life! 

After all the fun of face painting, we looked at the book ‘The Colour Monster’; we thought about our feelings and the different colours that represent them. The children had some really interesting ideas as to what colours they thought represented different feelings, with some agreeing that pinks and yellows represent happiness, while mixtures of purple/brown represent confusion. Following this, we tracked our feelings for the whole week and engaged in a lot of discussion about our emotions.

In English, we started the week by thinking about synonyms for different colours and how we could use them in our writing. From this, we created a book mark that we could refer to during lessons.

As part of Geography, we incorporated colour into our ‘Rivers’ topic. We identified the different features of rivers and created a piece of collaged art to showcase our understanding.

Finally, we looked at the artist ‘Pablo Picasso’, with particular focus on his ‘cubism’ era. We studied how he created his art by looking at different angles of the face. We then recreated this and drew our own portraits, using different shades of blue to colour them. Look how brilliant they are!

Well done Year 4!
