Art and Design

Claude Monet - Watercolour


In art, we have been studying the impressionist artist Claude Monet and his use of watercolours. We have explored various techniques with the watercolour paints and produced our own version of his famous work, ‘The Water Lily Pond’.

Design Technology

We followed the Research, Design, Make and Evaluate model in DT to create our very own Christmas tree decorations. Our design brief was to make a decoration that would:


  • ​​​​​​​Be able to hang on a branch
  • Be stuffed with cotton
  • Include a button as part of the design
  • Bring Christmas cheer


We had to master some tricky sewing skills but we’re sure you would agree that all of our designs fitted the brief!




In science we have enjoyed exploring electricity. We used the equipment to make circuits, investigated switches and found out what materials make effective conductors and insulators.

We have also been finding out about sources of electrical energy and how it reaches our homes. It was also important to identify electrical dangers and how to use electricity safely.




This half term we are learning all about the Romans. We have found out about when and where the Romans conquered, looked at Roman soldiers and their armour and have designed our own Roman shields.
