Year 4 are currently involved in an exciting project entitled ‘Art on the Line’, in association with The Broads Authority and the Water, Mills and Marshes team.
Schools around the county have been chosen to represent their local areas, with the aim of encouraging more people to visit some of the attractions near to the railway stations on the Norfolk line.
We recently went out in minibuses to visit Breydon Water and Burgh Castle, where we discussed and sketched the landscapes.
Back in class, we are now busy turning some of our sketches into watercolour paintings which will soon be on display at a special exhibition at Lowestoft Train Station. After that, some of them will be chosen to be displayed on a special board at Great Yarmouth Train Station, so that visitors can see some of the wonderful attractions in our local area.
Year 4 family cafes will take place on:
Thursday 10th October, 2 – 3pm
Monday 20th January, 2 – 3pm
Thursday 19th March, 9 – 10am
Wednesday 20th May, 2 – 3pm
We hope to see you there!
To begin our ‘Blue Abyss’ topic, Year 4 went to the Sea Life Centre.
We were taken on a guided tour with members of staff who could share their expertise with us. Do you know Dory’s real name? Or how many teeth a shark goes through in its lifetime?
We also got to stroke a starfish! We described it as being ‘rough’, ‘lumpy’, ‘bumpy’, and ‘a bit like a big fish finger’!
