What a busy week!
We’ve been busy on art to redo displays. We put up the faces we drew last week – and they came out really quite well. We looked at the waterfalls of Hokusai and in two’s or three’s did our own. Again some lovely results.
In Englsh comprehension turned to poetry – and this was really hard. The biggest probem is the vocabulary at this stage, and working out what it means when there are not clear senences. This proved a real challenge. More pictures were done here to illustrate one of the comprehensions. They were really interesting. Now we have started on the writng stories.
Anyway, the children always enjoy having their parents into the classroom and showing off what we can do. It was good to see you. Thank you for coming.
This week we have been trying to draw people moving. What an improvement! Proportions are still a bit of a problem, but that’s been improving too. Legs are getting longer as they should. The progress is visible.
In Maths we have been revisiting proportion and ratio. It seems easy enough in class, but when we have to recall it, it’s amazing how we forget or get confused. We really need to make sure we know it well.
Y13 students have made the exposition of all the work and artistic pieces they have been working on during the 2 years visual arts course. The exposition was visited by their parents, friend and classmates. Everyone has enjoyed the presentations and have encouraged our young artists to continue with their good work.
This term Year 1 have been looking at sculptures so together with the children we decided to make a whole class mural.
We chose the theme day and night because we are learning about ´light and dark´ in Science.
The children are really proud of themselves as it took a lot of hard work and time to finish.
They have also been learning to comment about their own work and talk about what they liked most about their mural.
You can read some of the comments children made in the photos.
Year 5 visited Sagrada Familia to look at some of Gaudi’s beautiful work! We listened to information on his ideas and inspirations, the children were able to get a feel for Art that has been in construction since the end of the Industrial Revolution!
Year 2 have been recreating and designing their own Miro pictures. We painted on the bright blocks of bold color first and then added the black lines in with oil pastel once the paint was dry. Don´t they look great!
Year 7′s aliens are invading the reception area of our school these days.
The students have created these sculptures of paper mâché and later on painted them!
They did a great job!
The children had a great start to the New Year and really enjoyed using plasticine to create their own sculpture as part of their new Art topic. They’re looking forward to doing this more often!
Y7 learn about color families and how to mix different shades of colors
