Celebration of learning in the Summer Term.

Learning in Spring

In Reception, pupils have been doing observational drawings of daffodils.

Year 2 have been learning how to show pattern by weaving, in addition to decorating textiles to add colour and detail. Their ‘under the sea’ themed placemats were inspired by craftmakers from around the world.

Year 4 learnt about the work of famous artists including L.S. Lowry where they studied, copied and recreated some of his techniques.

In Year 5, during Book Week, we read Sharing a Shell by Julia Donaldson. In art, we recreated a scene from the book using mixed media. We used paper, card, shells, tissue paper, pens, paint, crayons and pencils to create different parts of the scene.

In Year 6, the pupils have been learning about perspective. They were inspired by the work of Vincent van Gogh, David Hockney and LS Lowry. The pupils created paintings in the style of these fantastic artists.

Learning in Autumn 2

In Nursery, we have been learning to create artwork using different materials.

Year 2 have been using different materials to create a picture of Fire of London.

Year 4 have been learning about autumn art. They have used shading, bending and their knowledge of hot and cold colours to create autumn leaf art.

In Year 6, the pupils created ‘Dig for Victory’ posters. This work was linked to their History learning about World War 2. 

Learning in Autumn 1

Lest We Forget. All pupils used clay to make a poppy. They shaped it and painted it using the correct colours.

In Nursery, the pupils used stencils to create a picture.

In Reception, the pupils created self-portraits.

In Year 1, the pupils made a piece of artwork in the style of Henri Matisse.

In Year 2, the pupils learnt about the primary and secondary colours. They enjoyed drawing self-portraits.

In Year 3, the pupils made mosaic insects.

In Year 4, the pupils made Chinese scroll paintings.

In Year 5, the pupils created papyrus paper using overlapping to create texture and an ancient effect.
