Creative display boards around the school identify not only the focus of the subject or topic, but also demonstrate an understanding of an art element. Here are a few that have been spotted:
Year 1 have loved making the planets from the solar system. We made the planets using papier-mâché and then painted the planets in groups. Look through our classroom window to see our amazing solar system!
In year 6 we studied the works of Paul Nash, and the way he used colour in his WWII art.
In year 3, we combined the idea of maths and tangrams into wonderful abstract works of art.
Pirates have been spotted in pen and line drawings in year 3.
Cubs and Foxes have engaged in some expressive painting, incorporating texture into their creations!
Negative space produces the idea of buildings in our year 2 Fire of London paintings; mixing colours to blend into the next works on artistic skills.
Nature plays a role with year 1 classes, where we used water colours to create our own variety of bird!
Reception classes used items found in nature to create a “living” display, highlighting our autumn season.
Collage with pompoms and paint have also been used and give a 3D effect to our work in Reception.
Inside the year 2 classroom, we have some self-portraits with creative results!
We looked at the fine details of Paul Nash’s pictures and tried to copy what we saw using pencil drawings and sketching.
