Year 4 – Monet – Mr Evans
Welcome to Monet Class!
We are named after Claude Monet who was an impressionist artist.
Monet was born in 1840 in Paris, France, his family were grocers and they expected Claude to follow in their footsteps but he had other ideas!
At age 11 he went to art school where a mentor taught him to use oil paints and how to capture nature in a painting.
Monet sought adventure so he joined the army and went to Africa at age 21.
He became ill and his aunt begged him to come home, saying she would pay for him to go to an art course at university if he came home.
He later married and had a family. He didn’t make a lot of money at first although now his art goes for huge amounts at auction…

Spelling, Multiplication Tables and Homework:
Each child will receive up to 15 spellings to learn each week. These will be taken home each Monday. The children will then be ‘tested’ the following week. Please help your child to practice these regularly, both in isolation and within a sentence. The completed spelling sheet should be returned to the teacher for their house point reward.
Children will be practicing their multiplication tables every day in the form of the ‘Rock Star Challenge.’ The aim is to be precise and quick,, children will be challenging themselves against the clock!
Homework will be set half termly and will be project based. The focus on this terms project will be the ‘Ancient Egyptians.’ There will be tasks for English, Maths and Science with each task being worth differing amounts of points. How many points will you accumulate? Remember points mean prizes!
