Year 1/2 - Phonics
Year 1/2 have been enjoying being in their new phonics groups this term. They love to work with their partners to be the ‘teacher’ and teach their partner the new sounds that they are learning! Getting to read a new book each week is very exciting and they love to see how quickly they can read their speedy words!
Year 3/4 - Sculpture Artists
This week, we have been learning about the sculpture artist Susan Lordi. We looked at her sculptures of family relationships and then used clay to create our own. Susan Lordi’s sculptures don’t have facial features and so use the body to depict emotions. During the lesson, we learned about different ways to work with clay and how to attach pieces of clay together using score and slip methods. We loved it! Enjoy looking at our creations!
Year 5/6 - Richard Kimbo's Art
In art, the children designed a picture based on South African artist Richard Kimbo’s artwork about Africa. They were tasked with creating their own batik using bright colours. They mixed flour and water to act as a barrier rather than wax, after painting, the hardened flour mixture was scraped away to reveal the outlines!
