McCarthy Class – Year 4
Brianna McCarthy is a mixed media visual communicator who lives and works in Trinidad and Tobago. She is a self-taught artist and her work represents different Afro-Caribbean women. Her form takes shape through illustration, collage to model making, fabric collage, traditional media, and installation pieces.
Miss Tuzzeo has chosen this artist as she thinks the artwork is incredibly unique, eye catching and attractive for the children to study and explore. She believes they will enjoy recreating their own art in the style of McCarthy. It will also be interesting for the children to learn more about the artwork and what it represents.
Children will be given a list of Spellings every Monday which need to be learnt for the following Monday.
On Mondays the homework book is sent home. One week the work will be based on Literacy or Phonics and the following week the focus will be Maths.
From January 2017 the children will also take home a “KIRFs” (Key Instant Recall Facts) sheet each half term to be learnt.
Reading is also very important. We encourage children to read with an adult as often as possible. We will be sending home a new book on a weekly basis. Please sign the reading record when you read with your child/children.
We have a shared library with many interesting books. Children are encouraged to use it.
Physical Education takes place twice a week. It is very important that PE kits are kept in school at all times. Please mark each item clearly - that includes plimsolls as it can quite difficult for your child to find them when they are all changing at once.
More information about what your child is learning in school can be found on the curriculum map
