Restless Rivers - What is a river?


Greetings Year 4, 


Our Geography focus this half-term is going to be on rivers. In this introduction, you've got a powerpoint presentation to read through, including some dicussion points and videos, and a couple of activities to print out and complete. If you don't have a printer, then download the images and edit them using MS Paint or other application.


There's also an optional extra task that you can complete that should give you a better understanding of erosion and deposition.


As with all subjects, you can send us photos or copies of your work here.

LO: to demonstrate techniques when drawing a self-portrait


I can remember to -

  • think carefully about size and shape
  • use a mirror to focus on the individual details of my face
  • draw lightly with a pencil
  • use my pencil to shade light and dark tones on different areas of my face


Today we are going to focus on drawing self portraits using pencils so show the light and dark areas of our faces. What I really want you to focus on in this art lesson are the details of your faces. You do this by using a mirror. If you don't have a hand mirror, you can sit in front of a mirror as you are drawing. Make sure you constantly check the mirror as you work to ensure that each and every one of the wonderful details on your individual faces is captured.


Here is a link to a real artist giving advice about drawing a self portrait:


After watching this. Please watch the my video, which shows again the steps of drawing a self portrait, with the key skills from the remember tos. Please upload any photos of your art work to the google form:


I have also included a step by step guide to drawing your face if you need it. You can find this under my video.

I'm looking forward to seeing all of your lovely portraits!

Storm Filomena: Spain sees 'historic' snowfall


Storm Filomena has blanketed parts of Spain in heavy snow, with half of the country on red alert for more across the weekend. The Spanish government has told people to stay at home as the cold weather is set to continue, with temperatures in Madrid predicted to hit -12°C.


el tiempo - the weather

I would like you to watch the video below. Listen carefully to the pronunciation of each new word and have a go at saying it yourself. Remember, it doesn't matter if you don't quite get it right the first time, just listen again and give it another go! 


Create a wordmat for the vocabulary used to describe the weather.

Remember to draw a picture for each new word and carefully copy the spelling from the video.

Just for fun:
