Year 5 and 6 Art
In Art, Year 5 and 6 have been drawing pictures of the moon using chalks and pastels. They first looked at different pictures to see what the surface of the moon looked like. Then they had to draw pictures, adding structure and shade with chalks and pastels, to show the surface of the moon and how craters look on the moon.
Salt Dough Earth
Yesterday, 26th April, Year 4 created their very own salt dough Earth. They looked closely at each individual layer that makes up the Earth and then followed instructions carefully to make salt dough and dye it to the corresponding colour. The final layer was the Earth’s crust which the children created using little pieces of blue and green to represent the tectonic plates. They had lots of fun and we think the end results look fantastic!
Year 3 Art
Today, 30/04/18, the children in year 3 have started to make their new art project – a volcano. The children used empty bottles and attached them to their cardboard bases. They then covered and moulded their volcanoes looking at size and height. The children had to work together in order to ensure their volcanoes were secure; many hands make light work!
Year 5 - Art
Today the 2nd of July, the children in year 3 have moved onto painting their long boats and sails as part of their Viking Art project. They are creating a 3d picture of the sea and sky; they have been using different stages to layer on layer to create a wonderful 3D effect. How creative.
French Artist George Seurat
This week Reception class have been looking at the French artist George Seurat. We painted pictures using lots of little dots. The children created the paintings using their fingers. The children have been using construction blocks to create famous landmarks and also made French flags and drew lots of different pictures.
Year 2 Ancient Greece Art
Year 2 loved learning about art from Ancient Greece. They used a variety of different mediums and art resources to create different textures to produce a Greek vase. The final pieces will be proudly displayed in the year 2 classroom on Monday 16th July, we hope that you will join us and be able to see them for yourselves.
Aboriginal Art - Year 5
Today the year 5 children looked at aboriginal art from Australia. We noticed that the pieces are often made up of small dots to create an image. With this in mind, the children drew images of things that remind them of Australia (like boomerangs and lizards) and then used their fingers or small paintbrushes to make their images come alive.
