Our teachers made a fabulous modroc dragonfly at a recent staff meeting. In Year 6, the Jaguars have already used their new friend (now called Dennis) as inspiration for a writing task. Now, Dennis is coming to life during lunchtime and art lessons.
As part of our topic ‘Frozen Planet’, the Jaguars have used their observational and fine line pencil skills to draw a polar bear using the correct proportions and features. We will revisit our sketches next week when we start our watercolour work.
The Year 3/4 Owls looked at lots of different firework patterns and then recreated some of these using pastels. We blended the colours with our fingers. Have you spotted any of these patterns in the sky over the last few weeks?
The Jaguars created pieces in the style of Nerys Levy (an activist for climate change and contemporary artist). The children used oil pastels to create bold lines and watercolours to produce muted shades.
The Foxes dazzled a huge audience with their amazing assembly all about Superheroes. They looked awesome as they sang, shared their Big Writes, art work and poetry.
Well done Foxes… you were wonderful!
The Daisies have learned two facts about spiders, they have 8 legs and 8 eyes. They have worked very hard to make hand print spiders that have 8 legs and we tried our very best to stick on 8 eyes. Some of us got very excited and gave our spiders LOTS of eyes.
The Year 1/2 Bees have enjoyed baking and decorating Space themed biscuits this week. They have measured out ingredients, and carefully mixed and rolled out the dough ready to bake. They were delicious too!
The Jaguars have fully enjoyed designing and creating their mini allotments, having been inspired by their recent visit to Reobert Street Allotments. The children are very impressed with their results and it has helped them when writing instructions in their English lessons.
The Year 5/6 Tigers were fortunate enough to be visited by an artist this week. We looked at different artists and their styles of artwork. We were then tasked to create our own sculptures out of card to represent animals and people with an artistic twist.
