Week Beginning 26th November

This Friday we had Green Day! We talked about plastic pollution. We discussed how plastic is very useful and we thought about all the things plastic is made from. However, getting rid of unwanted plastic is a challenge. We discussed how this affects animals, especially in the sea and oceans.

We then made our very own sea turtles using recycled lids from our milk bottles.

Week Beginning 19th November

This week the children have been looking at the artist Pablo Picasso. They learnt that he liked to draw, paint and design sculptures. They also learnt that his designs were abstract. This means that his pictures didn't always represent what they would normally look like.

He used shapes and colours to make unusual pictures of faces so that they look distorted or out of line.

The children created some pictures of their own using photos from people from the past including Queen Elizabeth l and King Henry Vlll as these are people we have been learning about in our history topic.

!Children in Need!

On Friday, the children really enjoyed wearing their spotty clothes or pajamas to school! In the afternoon we attended the bring and buy sale. We were then lucky enough to also have a cake sale and movie :)

Thank you for all your donations!

We really appreciate all your support and the children had a fantastic time.

Week Beginning 5th November

This week we have been learning about Queen Elizabeth l. We have learnt lots of interesting facts including how long she was queen for, who her family were, how she had black teeth from eating so much sugar and how she used to throw her shoes at people when she was angry! We have started drawing our own portraits of Queen Elizabeth for a new class display.

Week Beginning 24th September 2018

We used our shading skills from last week to start painting our flowers in the style of Georgia O'Keeffe. We started with the original colour and then mixed white to make the colours lighter and lighter. Next week we are going to make our colour darker!

What colour can we add to make our red and purple darker?

Week Beginning 17th September 2018

This week in art we have been learning about the artist Georgia O'Keeffe. She began experimenting with painting close up views of flowers. She used oil paints in vibrant, bold colours. We are creating our own version of O'Keeffe's work. First we practised shading by mixing colours to make them lighter every time. We then sketched our own flowers ready for painting.
