Spring Term 2019

RAINFORESTS

Having spent the first term delving into History, we now move on to Geography as we venture into the rainforests.

 One of our first art activities was to study the work of Eric Carle. We looked at how he create ddifferent textures and considered how we could do the same. on large sheets of sugar paper we used a variety of tools such as: the end of a glue spreader, paintbrushes, sponges and serrated cardboard to create our prints. Next we had to choose an animal from the rainforest and recreate in the correct style. Although we made a huge mess, we had a great time and have ended up with some amazing pieces of art. Here are sone of them.

 more art work involved studying Rousseau. W eworked in gorups of 6 and all took a piece of the same picture. We had to work carefully to make sure thta when we put the pieces together they created one complete image. as you can see the children worked really hard on scale to produce excellent results.

Following our collaboration with groups to create one piece of work, we then worked individually to create our own artwork in the style of Rousseau. We used mixed media, including pencil crayons, pastels and water colours to create our work.

 

 

We have also been using our research skills to look at endangered species of the rainforests. We looked at the different levels of threat and then chose our own animals to research. Here are just a few of our results.

 We have been celebrating all the hard work put in by the children for their topic homework. Many children produced fact filled powerpoints. Who knew it could take 10 minutes for a raindrop to make it through the layers to the floor!

We also had some amazing animations - including the vision of a cow being eaten by piranha!

Below is a small selection of work they have produced. Clearly a lot of time has been spent, with some amazing results

 

 

 

 Congratulations to all the children - as always a great selection of work was produced.

 

WOW! What a way to finish an amazing topic. We have spent the last week of term planning and making our monkey enclosures. The children have worked incredibly hard and used specific objects/ideas which would suit the monkey of their choice. Below is a small collection of the amazing finsihed enclosures.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Autumn Term 2018

WWI and WWII

 

Welcome back to a new term in Class Saturn. We will be starting the year by learning about WWI and WWII. The children have already created some excellent art work drawing an image and using a camouflage back ground.

 The children have been working hard on their war topic and have done some beautiful artwork based around Remembrance Day. FIrst they created an image and coloured it in, next on tracing paper they copied out In Flander's Field. Here are just a couple of examples.

 

 As part of our topic, we have also looked at the lives of evacuees in England. We worked in groups and carried out our own research and presented them using tags to create a poster. Here are a couple of ours.

 In art, we have been studying faces and how to draw an accurate portrait. We put these skills to work by recreating an image from 'The boy in the striped pyjamas.' Here is an example of their finished work. As you can the see the children did incredibly well.

 In English, the children have been learning about flashback stories. They have planned and written a stroy about a soldier returning from the war and are having a party held for them. During the party, the soldier has flashbacks to his time in the war. They have worked hard to create events in the party which could lead to a flashback.
