Year one and two have been letting their artistic juices flow in their Creative Art lessons this half- term!

The technique of Pointillism has been explored by Year one. They have investigated ways of making dots, using a range of drawing tools before using their skills to produce lots of different compositions. In addition they have looked at the pointillist artist, Georges Seurat, who devised a method of painting using thousands of coloured dots. Like Seurat, they have studied simple colour theory and discovered that positioning coloured dots together can bring about some surprising results. What a lot of lovely learning you have done, Year one!

In Year two, the children have concentrated on their drawing, colouring and collage skills.Their work has linked with the humanities topic about the ‘United Kingdom.’ Shields, Loch Ness monsters, dragons, daffodils and shamrock compositions have all featured in their lessons.The children have had fun creating their pictures and have grown in confidence in their mark-making skills as each week has passed. Many colourful, effective pieces of work have been produced which the children are genuinely proud of. You are all becoming fantastic artists in Year two! Well done!

The children in Reception and Nursery have had a fantastic week making and creating.

Reception have been learning about all of the different types of homes around the world and have been looking at the similarities and differences to their own home. In Art, they have been using different media and materials to create their very own city. These designs were either their dream homes, real homes or homes they had thought of using their imaginations! I think you will agree that the ‘city’ looks fantastic!

In Nursery the children have been looking at the story ‘The Gruffalo’ by Julia Donaldson. The children thought carefully about the characters in the story before using their mark making skills to draw and colour these characters from the story. They also made their own Mr Men or Little Miss.

We hope you all have a restful and enjoyable half term holiday!
