Year 4

Clown Faces Family Learning Event – 17th September 2018

The Year 4 children had a wonderful morning creating clown faces with light up noses. Given only the resources needed to make a circuit, they were left to figure out how to make the bulb light up using only their imagination and creativity. Some children even went that extra mile and decided to include more than one bulb in their design. It was lovely to welcome family members along to the event too and see them being creative, working along side their children. In addition, the children were able to demonstrate the Sitwell Seven skills of RELATIONSHIPS, REFLECTION and RISK-TAKING when designing their clown face. The clown faces were then judged and the ones that came in first, second and third places can be seen below. The clown with the body attached came in first place as we thought that team went above and beyond the challenge success criteria. There was also a fourth place face as the teachers found it so hard to choose just 3 winning teams!

At Sitwell Junior School, we use the Chris Quigley Creative Themes Curriculum, which is adapted to suit the needs of all our children. This curriculum complements our creative approach to teaching and learning and allows the children to develop the Sitwell 7 Values through collaborating on a range of projects.
