    To start the new school year Rhine Class have been learning about their class name.  Did you know that the Rhine river once turned red or that it has 4 different names?

    We used what we learnt about the river to create our river stone designs, which are now proudly displayed on the window shelves.

  • Doughnut Maths

    Published 20/07/23

    Rhine class love a maths problem, so for our last maths lesson of the year we solved the doughnut problem.

    How can you cut into 8 equal parts with only 3 cuts of the knife?

    May be an image of text that says "Doughnut Age 7to11 7 to Challenge Level $ How can you cut a doughnut into eight equal pieces with only three cuts'of fa a knife?"

    Lots of clever and interesting ideas - if only it wasn't a ring doughnut - then at last someone thought about slicing it horizontally - big cheers all around. 

    We had to test it on a real doughnut then  we enjoyed one each on the field.  Maths and food go well together!

  • Cityscapes

    Published 16/07/23

    This term in art Rhine class have explored cityscapes and studied work from a range of artists including Yvonne Jacquette, an American painter who is famous for her aerial cityscapes.

    We learnt that cityscapes are the urban version of landscape paintings and often they are streets, buildings and skylines.

    Do you know what photorealism and hyperrealism are - some of us like the more realistic cityscapes that showed emotion and feeling such as Richard Estes'.

    Finally the children then  enjoyed designing their own cityscapes, some distorted some including skylines and some including aerial views.
