Miss Bentley showed us her holiday sketchbook to give us some ideas. We have to try to fit lots of work into one page and set it out in an imaginative way. You can write in it, draw in it, you can stick things in. We are the only people allowed to work in our sketchbooks.
So today in art we made a load of different feathers. Some were on baking paper, some used ink and some we made out of felt and fabric. In the ink we used sticks to draw feathers all kinds of different shapes and sizes. On the baking paper we used graphite. The ink was hard because you had to try not to use too much and the sewing was hard to make because some looked like leaves. I liked the sewing and the baking paper because it looked so cool as it came out and it was really easy to draw on.
In year 5 we have been making a banyan that is like a dressing gown for the scientist in the picture . Men sometimes wore these in the 18th century . In the picture the scientist is wearing a red banyan. We did some printing of things to do with science and light like eyes, brains, explosions and birds . We also put white gloves on and painted a dressing gown with Brusho. We experimented with sprinkling salt on the paint. We decided to make the banyan into a advertisment for the scientist for his experiements so we made letters that say, Dr Englightenment Risking Lives for science.
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.
