Year 4 Class Work
Greek Comedy and Tragedy Masks
The children have looked at Greek comedy and tragedy masks, they have then used paper mache to create their own mask, they have built up areas like the nose and eye brows using tissue paper. Below are some of the masks in progress. Check back in the next couple of weeks for the finished masks.
The children then used their masks to take part in a Greek style performance. They love using big exaggerated movements and enjoyed the myths we explore which linked to our English work.
St. Thomas More Retreat
Year 4 joined the other schools in the MAC at St. Thomas More for a Retreat day. The children explored the stations of the cross and what Lent meant to them. The children enjoyed the activities and it gave them an opportunity to reflect.
We enjoyed forest school and enjoyed cooking and eating pancakes together. We thought about how the next day would be Ash Wednesday and discussed how this can be a good time to think about what we are sorry for.
