After a long week of assessments we decided to get back to the serious subject of art! We decided to create a forest scene and use layers of watercolour to create depth and mysteriousness.The children produced some incredible work…some of the best paintings they have done.
The children worked in pairs looking at text from different periods of time throughout the history of the world. They then made masks of different animals which existed at different times and explained what the world was like when they lived.
This was part of our literacy work to deepen our understanding of The Pebble In My Pocket.
For the last two weeks of term we studied the beautiful book – The Pebble In My Pocket, a picture book showing a pebble’s journey through the history of the world.
Here they are using drama to act out some of the scenes in the book. The children are performing as prehistoric animals, cavemen and women and even the pebble itself, as it tumbles down the side of a volcano.
The children in Green Class have gained a lot of experience with art over the last few terms…especially with the tricky techniques of colour washing and perspective. We are trying to learn that less means more!
Here we worked on a spectacular mountain-by-a-lake scene.
Some of the children are also holding their shark paintings we did the following week.
