The reception children have used a vegetables to demonstrate a printing method. Lots of lovely paint colours were used to make the pictures really shine.
Year 1 have had a wonderfully creative time using Peta Boyce, an Australian wildlife artist, as inspiration for our watercolour paintings of birds. As part of ‘Nature Explorer’ topic, we looked at the birds that we find locally and made observational drawings. Then we used watercolours to bring them to life.
We have loved finding out the names of the birds that we see around us!
In Art, we have been creating self-portraits. First we drew the outline of ourselves by carefully observing and copying our features using a mirror. Then we completed our portraits by mixing different colours together to match the correct colours for our skin, hair and eyes. We also tried hard to stay inside the lines! You might want to come and see our paintings which will be hanging in our classroom windows.
Year 2 children enjoyed creating observational drawings of leaves and flowers in their sketch books. They took great care to add detail and to draw what they could see.
In year 2, we have expressed ourselves through a paper and colour pencil medium to put our own personalities on display.
