Pop Art!

Our colour enquiry is developing well in Class Adams. The children thoroughly enjoyed their Holi celebration and have now begun to explore how colour hit the world after World War II in the form of Pop Art. They were not sure that they would enjoy being Pop artists but they’re slowly changing their minds. This week we have discovered the works of Warhol and Lichtenstein and used the iPads to electronically change a picture in the style of Andy Warhol.

Make a phone.

In science we have been learning that sound is made when an object vibrates. These vibrations travel through the air and other media as waves until they reach the outer ear.

Have a go at making a paper cup phone to show this happening. You will need two paper cups, some inelastic string or fishing wire and two paper clips. Make a hole in the base of each cup, thread through the string and tie a paper clip inside the cup to prevent the string from detaching. Pull the string taut and have one person speak into one of the cups while you listen through the other. The cups can be used to communicate over distances of up to 30m. The paper cup phone works by transmitting sound vibrations along a tightly-pulled string.

Should we see everything in black and white?

Next week we will be immersing ourselves fully in the colourful celebration of Holi.

Class Adams Update and home learning.

We have come to the end of a busy half term. We had a fantastic trip to Ryedale Folk Museum on Wednesday. Remember to look at the Malton Primary School twitter feed (@maltonprimary) to keep updated daily with what we are doing in class. 


Following our work on Anglo Saxons this half term, we would like you to consider these questions and return to school with a 30 second presentation prepared after half term. You can have written notes and/or posters and pictures to help you. You will be rewarded with house points for effort.

- would you like to have lived in the Anglo Saxon period?
- how did the Anglo Saxons change Britain?
- can you see evidence of Anglo Saxons in your lives? E.g do you do/have things that Anglo Saxons would have had/done. 
- were they vicious or victorious... or both?
