In Art Year 5 have been looking at the artist Claude Monet. In this lesson they were using oil pastels to add colour to a piece of art. Their main focus was to use short, rapid strokes/lines to keep within Monet’s style. Take a look at some of the work that was produced.
Year 5 are looking at country scenes and city scenes in art and design. We had a look at some of van Gogh’s beautiful countryscapes and night time cityscapes and had a go at doing some ourselves! The children were really creative and were so proud of their work. Take a look at some of the work that was created, it really is brilliant.
Today wasn’t a good day. Today was a sad day. Today we said goodbye to Mrs Sabir.
All of the children and adults are going to miss her.
She has helped us all in so many varied ways this year. Not only has she taught us throughout the year, bringing fun to our learning, but she also is always there to listen. If ever we struggle with things in school or at home she is there for us. She listens, offers advice and helps us through our problems.
This year wouldn’t have been the same without her.
To celebrate how brilliant she is, we created our own versions of Mrs Sabir the super-hero.
We really hope to see her again soon. It is good though to know that she will be able to spend more time with her children from now on.
This week we have been using water colour paints to create our calendars. We have one tree but with all four seasons across the picture. Kestrels concentrated and really took their time – and their efforts show!
Last week we were drawing pictures of the countryside using pencils and crayons. This week we have used water colours. We discussed primary and secondary colours and practised different techniques to lighten and darken colours.
We have used most of our behaviours for learning during this lesson including creativity, concentration and perseverance. Well done Kestrels!
After our trip to Stock’s Farm, Year 5 Kestrels have been discussing the beautiful countryside. In Art we were looking at a countryside scene, using different techniques to put together features of a countryside including hills and mountains.
First we started by approximating where the horizon will be and thinking about perspective. We considered the scale and proportion of the trees and hills in our setting.
