Restless Rivers - How do we use rivers?


Greetings Year 4, 


Continuing our exploration of rivers, today you are going to find out more about how human being use rivers.


You've got a powerpoint presentation to read through, including some dicussion points and videos, and an activity to print out and complete. If you don't have a printer, then I've included a Word version of the worksheet that you can edit.


There's also a Google Form quiz that you can have a go at here.

Examples of River work



Well done on last week's evaluating. What a brilliant use of language! I can see some careers as art critics in your future!

M.C. Escher inspired portraits


L/O: to be able to focus on the details


I can remember to -

  • read about M.C. Escher to learn more about his artworks
  • work step by step to draw a detailed sketch of an eye
  • complete my drawing by adding something that I would like to see


Well done on those fantastic evaluations from last week. I noticed that the 'Hand with Reflecting Sphere' by M.C. Escher was a favourite and so we will be looking at some techniques inspired by the amazing artist M.C. Escher.



Use the website link to read more about Escher and discover how he used mathematics and art to create incredible works of art.

Please then take the Escher quiz to show what you have learned.


This week, we are going to focus on features in detail, using this Escher drawing as our inspiration:


Use the tutorial to help you draw an eye and then illustrate whatever you would like to see in the middle. As you can see, Escher used a skull but perhaps you could be more positive, like in the example:




I'm looking forward to seeing what you produce!

Please send in photos of your finished drawings to the Google form


For this lesson you are asked to use an old CD but if you don't have one then anything round will do. Work step by step through the instructions to create your detailed drawing of an eye and then use coloured pencils to add colour.

PE & Music

It's time to get your dancing shoes on this week!! Join Dazzle Dance Amy for 22 minutes of groovy music and dance moves!

Here's our class bubble band from last Friday's musical moments. We obviously had no saucepans in the classroom but managed to find items we could make a sound with!

Here's your singing lesson from Sheffield Music Hub this week - enjoy!


Please note: during this video there is reference to ‘splitting the class’ as the videos were recorded for the purposes of class teaching. If you're learning from home, you can just choose a part to sing with. There will always be another member of the team singing the other part so you will still get the full benefit of singing in 2 parts - you can pick your favourite! 

Key Stage 2 Week 3

Please complete this quiz after your video has finished!
