Kestrels have finally finished their artwork centered around their knowledge of The Bayeux tapestry. I’m sure you’ll agree, they have done a fine job. Mrs Calbreath is looking for somewhere around school to hang it.

This week, year 5 have been introduced to the artist Claude Monet. The children have been practicing mixing colours to create a colour palette inspired by the artist. Look at the work they have created!
Experimenting with Colour
Today year 5 continued with their Art topic; studying the work of Claude Monet. They learnt about him as a person, how he liked to paint and how influential he was in the area of ‘Impressionism’. The children listed the 6 main ideas that define Impressionism and next week, they’ll have a go at creating a colour palette to demonstrate their understanding.
Our topic this year in Art is Claude Monet. The children were given a jigsaw of one of his paintings and had to assemble it to see just what the impressionist’s work was like. They are looking forward to creating their own colour palette this week and delving more into the artist’s life and work.
Amelia J’s fantastic artwork!
Year 5 have had a very enjoyable Art topic this term studying Monet. They have practised their sketching skills and applied all the painting techniques to produce some really lovely pieces of art. They finished with an evaluation of their work and assessed how their finished pieces could be Improved.
In Art yesterday, year 5 worked with glue and tissue paper to create textures. They layered paint, glue and tissue to create a 3D effect.
Today, they started to sketch their drawings. They chose a nature themed picture and used light & dark to produce some rather impressive pieces of Art.
Claude Monet paintings
Year 5 have started their Art topic: Claude Monet. They studied the artist’s life history as well as his paintings and critiqued a chosen painting. They then worked with primary colours only, to mix a colour palette to match that of the natural world. I’m sure you’ll agree the results were incredible!
Painting in style of Claude Monet
In the week, Year 5 Kestrels printed pictures of flowers, blossom and trees that we liked. During art today, we started painting the pictures in the style of Claude Monet, thinking carefully about colour and texture.
Some children started a lovely background wash to their picture, trying to add texture and depth to it using the paint.
Some children made an excellent start to their painting by adding the flowers and blossoms or trees onto their background.
