We will learn about the artist, where he lived and the period of history he lived in. In our art lessons, we will recreate his art and use his techniques to create our own masterpieces.
In the second half term ,we will compare Seurat's work to that of the English painter LS Lowry.
In our music lessons we will be using French music from the second half of the 19 century to help us learn about different musical terms.
In science we will begin by learning about forces, focusing on magnets. After half term we move on to learn about skeletons which will link to bone inspired music lessons.
We will be continuing to work on the school allotment, planting out and caring for our plants. Here's hoping for lots of lovely warm sunshine, with just the right amount of overnight rain to save us having to water!
