Art & Design

This week in Art, class one have been learning all about sketching. The children spent time looking carefully at an image of a Beatle. The children then experimented with using their pencil in different ways to add texture and shading to their drawing.

Class 3 finished their sketches of some of the treasures found in Pharaoh Tutankhamun's tomb- they developed their ideas over time through a range of initial sketches before producing the final piece.

In Art and Design, the children designed their own Egyptian nemes (Head dress) and then made it; improving their mastery of art and design techniques.

Our great artists on show in Class 1- using a range of materials creatively to design their own product.

Class 3 finished their sketches of some of the treasures found in Pharaoh Tutankhamun's tomb. The children recorded their observations and used them to review and revisit ideas.

Class 2

Having learned different music vocabulary earlier in the week, we listened to some live jazz music and talked about the pitch, rhythm, tempo and volume of the different sounds we could hear. We then thought about different shapes that we could associate with those sounds, explaining why we chose them. Looking at Kandinsky’s artwork for inspiration, we created our own abstract pieces by sketching ideas first and then putting these separate ideas together into a final, colourful piece.
