We made models of clothes for the guests to wear at the royal wedding.
“I used pink, blue, gold and some string and some dark colours and rainbow colours.”
“We used gold paper to make the crowns.”
“I used red fluffy fabric for a dress and I used blue wool to attach some pink fluff.”
It was tricky how to get the arms in because you needed to put the manequins arm through.

We looked at an artist called Yayoi Kusama. She really likes dots!
Parents attended a fabric painting workshop today. We are making a display for the front window about the Rights of the Child. We used Brusho paint, salt and bleach to create interesting effects. Mrs Joll chatted to parents about the UNICEF rights while we created some very colourful panels. Next Thursday we will be adding more details, do join us!
In Art we drew dried poppy heads, urchins, pine cones, lotus heads, shells and some funny orange seed pods.
We started off drawing small pictures. We drew patterns and looked really carefully. We had to draw without looking at the paper, it was a bit tricky! We also drew without taking our pencil off the paper. Then we drew big pictures with charcoal on a big piece of paper.
We looked at an architect called Gaudi. He used things like skeletons, shells, coral and scales in his buildings. We really liked the colours he used.
Next week we will be planning a building using our drawings. It was a fun experience!

We did a great lesson about drawing people. We got to draw people, paint them and even use our teeth to cut them out of bread!
First we had to use a paint brush and quickly painted people in different positions. We didn’t do details and we sketched on top. We did it in proportion.
We looked at an artist called Giacometti. He made models. They were like shadows of people after a war. They were not in proportion. We used torches and figures to draw around the shadows.
We looked at an artist called Antony Gormley. He made layers of bread and nibbled around a person sleeping on the bread bed. We took a piece of bread and nibbled the shape of a human inside it. It was tasty!

On Thursday 8th February 2018, we were doing an art lesson linked to our STEM week. We drew squid and fish, which penguins eat. In today’s lesson,we started with drawing a fish with a pen on an A4 piece of paper. We did some blind drawing when we had to not look at the paper but at the dead fish. We also did some continuous line drawing where you are not allowed to take the pen off the paper. We used watercolours to add a bit of colour. Did you know squid are a bit pink?
Samid said: “I loved drawing something real,’
Darsh said, ‘I used backwards-forwards drawing to draw accurately,”
Muhammed said, “I found it interesting because we had something real in front of us,”

Yesterday, we were using water colors to paint an iceberg in the Antarctic Ocean. Icebergs may look quite small on top, but they’re huge underwater!
We were using different shades of green and blue. There were many sea creatures such as krill, whales, coral and fish. Do you know that a whale is the biggest creature in the Antarctic Ocean?
A few other items we used were black oil pastels and salt. The reason we used salt was to give the water some texture. We made the water go darker and darker as it went deeper.
We also had to put in some penguins on the iceberg and swimming in the water.
We made it in the Infant Hall and it was on a really long piece of paper. The bottom of the ocean looked beautiful because it had colorful coral.
