Art and D.T. week February 4th - February 6th
For art and D.T. week this year, each class were given the challenge of creating a piece of art work on a canvas based on a book that they have read in their classroom. KS1's canvasses were art based and KS2 had the challenge of adding D.T. elements into theirs too. Here are some photos of the children taking part and of the parents coming to view our art gallery.
Year 6 chose to base their art work on the book 'Francis'. This is a book that the children have been reading for pleasure in their classroom. They practised lots of different skills such as painting, drawing and 3D sculpture when creating their masterpiece. As well as making their canvasses, they created a setting by using chicken wire, cardboard and paint to make the tree from the story. They also made some clay models of the animals from the story. They all look fantastic!
5HC had a fantastic time creating their canvas for art/D.T week. They based their art work on the book 'How to Train Your Dragon'. They had the challenge of adding D.T. elements into their canvas so they used split pins to create moving mouths on their dragons. 5NT also based their art work on the book 'How to Train Your Dragon'. For their D.T. challenge, they included a clock on their canvas. They both looked fantastic!

Year 4 had a wonderful time creating their canvas for art/DT week. They based their art on the book ‘One Plastic Bag’ and have really become interested and passionate about plastic pollution. 4EB not only created a whole class jigsaw for Isatou Ceesay but they created a series of statements from their poems and provided parents/ carers with 6 ways that they could reduce plastic pollution.
4EW drew their own versions of Isatou Ceesay and then used different coloured plastic bags to stick on their drawings to add different colours and textures. A lot of fun was had by all!
1KE based their art work around the book 'Lady Lollipop' as the children have loved reading this book in class. They used different materials to collage onto their canvas. The children had so much fun completing the project!
1NL based their art work on a book that they have been reading for pleasure in their classroom 'The Day the Crayons Came Home'. Each child designed their own crayon and then wrote a post card home. They stuck their postcards and crayon designs onto their canvas and then melted crayons over a template that said 1NL. It looks amazing!

RSCB have chosen to base their art work around The Gruffalo and RTM have chosen to base their art work around Room on the Broom. The children have been busy creating their scene from the book using a variety of different skills such as drawing, painting and collage. Below are some photos of the reception children in action!
During Forest School sessions, the children have been practicing their skills of teamwork and cooperation. They looked at sculptures made by a famous artist called Andy Goldsworthy and were amazed at what he had created with materials found around him in nature. The children then used this as their inspiration to produce Andy Goldsworthy inspired artwork in the Forest School area. They had a brilliant time and made some fantastic pieces that they would like to share. Below are some photos.
