Year 4 created some outstanding pots today in the style of the Ancient Greeks. Decoration to follow!
Year 3 had their WOW day for their ‘Flow’ topic. They completed four activities:
- Waterwise – a special guest worked with us to gain a better understanding about the water that we use.
- Painting – we created water paintings having been inspired by Claude Monet’s work.
- Science – we tested the ph levels of water from different sources.
- Music – we made water themed pieces using a range of instruments.
Year 5 have been using charcoal to create Mayan inspired artwork, with impressive results.
Art Club created pieces in the Fauvism modern artistic style today.
Year 3 enjoyed a wide variety of experiences related to their ‘Flow’ topic about rivers and water today. They were introduced to the water cycle, created river themed music using a pentatonic scale and painted pictures in an impressionist style, using Monet’s work as inspiration. The children also attended a ‘Water Wise’ session led by a visiting expert, where they learned about cleaning and testing water.
Year 5 painted messages using Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs this afternoon. As well as mixing colours to gain the correct shade and tone, the symbols had to clearly represent the Ancient script.
