We have been working hard on our painting skills this week, blending to create tints and shades and therefore create a sense of depth. I have been both pleased and impressed with the effort applied by the children, in addition to observing many of them challenge themselves by sketching the objects from real life. We […]

The children enjoyed art today and worked really hard to create detailed 3D drawings of balls of paper; focusing particularly on line, shade and tone. We will be using these skills to create detailed drawings of pieces of crime scene evidence in the coming weeks.
In preparation for our crime scene sketching, based on the long term project, we have been drawing 3D shapes. We focused hard on line direction and shading, then evaluated our partners drawings. Chess anyone?
Today, we completed our space themed collages. The children worked very hard on this large-scale art project and have created six, unique and well-thought out pieces. Keep an eye out for them going on display in the Year 5 corridor.
5CH have been busy over the last week – drawing these incredible oil pastel flowers. They have worked hard to blend carefully and to create natural flower shapes in the style of Georgia O’Keeffe.
5RW today created colour wheels using oil pastels. The children learnt how to make different strokes with the pastels and how to blend them into other colours. This is all in preparation for our large scale art work in the next coming weeks. The children had lots of fun creating the wheels and are excited […]
In 5CH we have been using different techniques to turn our Greek pot designs into 3D models. We rolled, cut and shaped the clay and tried our best to match the shapes of our designs. We will find out how successful we have been when we fire them in the kiln and paint them.
It has been a great day today in 5RW. After planning and designing their own pots, the children put their new skills into practice by making their pots from clay. First, the children had to roll the clay into a ball before placing their thumb inside and using their fingers to work the clay into […]
Archaeology has provided us with invaluable information about the past…and Greek vases are a fine example of useful historical artefacts. So we decided to create our own! We have studied imagery used on vases, then created our own scenes to represent on our pottery. After we have finished our planning, we will use clay to […]
