Thank you to the parents and grandparents who attended our ‘Reading Breakfast’ this morning. It was lovely to see families reading together and having a go at some of the reading challenges on offer at school. We hope you enjoyed it too!
Take a look at all our wonderful art work that has taken place across the year groups.
In art club this term we looked at the fifteenth century artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo. He created fantastic portraits using fruit and vegetables. We explored his techniques and created our own vegetable portraits. The children went on to use pastels and explore how the use of light and shadow helps to create a 3D image. They produced some fantastic still life pictures. We then looked at some water colour paint techniques and the children created some lovely miniature paintings. The children developed their use of line and pattern to produce some fantastic Zentangle images. We also worked on developing skills of shading and learnt about the proportions of the human face when creating portraits of Giuseppe himself.
This half term our learning has been based around ‘Traditional Tales.’
Take a look at what we have been up to.
