Andy Goldsworthy Art
This week, we looked at the Scottish artist Andy Goldsworthy and tried to create a piece of artwork in our school grounds that was in the same style as his famous art. We had lots of fun, developed our teamwork skills and our proud of our finished work. We tried hard to use colour and circles as well as natural resources in our grounds.
Exploring Artefacts in History
As part of our History 'Communication' and how communication has change over the years, we looked at some artefacts from the History Curriculum Centre. The children had great fun looking closely at changes and many commented how heavy the items were.
We have started our outdoor learning in the heathland this week. We had fun exploring the area and getting VERY muddy. We made a den, a bug hotel, played with conkers and climbed trees.
This half term, we have enjoyed Sarah coming into school on a Monday and coaching us on Netball. We have learned to pass the ball from our chest using our butterfly hands. We have also learned how to defend and attack. We enjoyed our team games.
In art, we have been looking at how to use chalk pastels and oil pastels to draw pictures of fruit and vegetables. We have been trying to recreate the work of famous artists Georgia O’Keefe, Vincent Van Gogh and Amy White.
Our topic this term is 'Enchanted Forest.' We will be learning lots of new fairy tales and writing about them in English. We started our new unit with a dress up day and scavenger hunt. It was super fun!
