Good Shepherd Catholic Primary, Coventry
On Wednesday 1st of July year 5 learned about the painting techniques of Vincent Van Gogh. We studied the picture "The Starry Night". He used his paint brush to create sideways marks, swirls, circles and curves. We have been inspired to use these same techniques in our own work.
On Tuesday we had a whole school Spanish Day. Children did cooking with Mrs Towey, making gazpacho and tortilla espanol! They also learnt about famous Spanish artists with Mr Jones, learnt the Our Father in Spanish and found out more about Spain. Visitors from Free Radio came to talk to the children about what they did.
All of the children had a lot of fun and enjoyed finding out more about Spanish culture.
Year 3 had a great time on their trip on Thursday to Bourton on the Water. We used our geographical skills to help us plan our route around Bourton and we used our maps to make sure we didn't get lost! We were also looking out for the human and physical features of Bourton and comparing them to Coventry.
We all really enjoyed it and some of us would even like to live there!
On Tuesday Year 5 went on an exciting trip to the Space Centre as part of our Science topic - The Earth and Beyond.
Bronwyn: "I really liked working with my team. At first I was stuck so we all tried to work together to complete our research task. I didn't like the planetarium! Thank you teachers for taking us all."
Noella: "I loved the planetarium show, it was the best part of the trip. It felt as if you were moving with the show. It made me feel really dizzy so now we know how astronauts feel in space. Scary! Overall the whole thing was a blast. I would love to go again."
On Thursday 25th June, Year 4 visited Hatton Locks in Warwick. The weather was beautiful as we strolled along the canal and discussed the different features.
We got to see lots of different narrow boats on the canal and even got to open and close the locks for them!
Year 4 were lucky enough to receive a valuable visit from the West Midlands Fire Service on Friday 19th June. We learnt about fire hazards along with how to keep ourselves safe around the home.
