This week in Nursery we have been exploring The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers. First by creating a galaxy using rubbings to make planets, we then discovered a plane in the cupboard! Which we painted bright red.
This week in Yrs 3&4 we had a lot of fun continuing with our Viking long-ships. We are working as partners which means that we’ve been helping each other with the tricky bits. We are decorating 6 little shields each which will go along the bows of each ship. We’ve been using our water-colour painting skills and have enjoyed designing each shield, adding gold solit pins to look like metal decorations. We hope to display these in the school somewhere….the Vikings are coming!
We’ve had a super busy start to the year and we’re really excited to now have our new art room up and running! Working in Years 3 and we’ve been mixing colours, handling paint, life drawing and looking at proportion of the body. Ending this term by making a large time line – from 3,000 BC to now, choosing characters from history. In Early years we also explored using marbling ink to mix colours, creating our own homes in collage and 3D. We’re also trying to find out everyone’s opinions on Art Clubs so we can plan new and exciting ones in the future, please spend a few minutes filling out our survey… https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScxuocE5GcCAYWPPnzNYbEtbmFmnAe2z-QpKaTsebP8h1dxlw/viewform?c=0&w=1
