Our artist Benny has been working with the ‘Changemakers’ again to create giant petals using willow, cling film and tissue paper. The technique is called ‘decoupage’ which involves decorating an object using coloured paper cutouts. The children are looking forward to waving these at the end of year carnival to celebrate the Commonwealth Games!

Year Two were so proud of their artwork today that they just had to call Miss Rowaiye to come and photograph some of their work to put onto the school website. They practised using different types of pencils for lighter and darker areas of their sketches and then used what they had learnt to create these fantastic sketches of airplanes. Aren't they just great?!

Across school, Hawthorn has been working with a local artist called Benny to create some artwork in readiness for the Commonwealth Games. They have talked about the word 'community' and created artwork that represents the community that is most important to them. They will be working with Benny over the next few weeks to create a 3 dimensional sculpture that celebrates and represents the Commonwealth.

Year Six have been learning about WW2 and have been inspired by the artist Henry Moore whose paintings depict scenes from the war.

During World War II, he was commissioned by the War Artists Advisory Committee to make drawings of people in London using underground stations as bomb shelters.
Can you see the similarities between Henry Moore’s art work and the art work of some of our Year Sixs? What media do you think they have used?

Year Three have been experimenting with different coloured paints to create prints for their Stone Age Cave Paintings. They will evaluate their prints, explaining which prints they liked the best  and why and then choose their favourite technique to create a final print. Watch this space for the results!

Year Three have been using their art skills to display what they know about Stone Age houses in History. During the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic ages, the Stone Age people built their houses using stone, wood and animal skins. They used what they could find to tie these things together to form the structure of the house and the house had a hole for the Stone Age people to enter and exit. They often built fires to keep themselves warm, to cook their food and keep predators away. Can you spot any of these things in their structures?

Year One have been learning all about The Great Fire of London. Look at some of the artwork they have produced showing a scene of the city as London burned. How fantastic is their colour mixing?

As part of their learning in Science, Year Three have created these amazing fossils using clay and plaster of Paris. The children discussed how fossils are formed and then created these fossils to reenact the process. Ask someone from Year Three all about it! It’s always fun when our learning in other subjects link to Art!

We think Mrs Zentani has been busy! Look what has appeared on the walls on the way to the den! Remember to stop by and have a think about some of the questions.

Year Two have a lovely new addition to the classroom and have added an Art and DT display! We look forward to seeing what they create and what will get added to the wall each half term. So far, they are showcasing their experimentation with primary and secondary colours.

WOW! To celebrate Black History Month, Reception have been soaring into space and learning all about black space men and women who have made an impact on what we know about Space today! Aren’t their rockets out of this world?
