Yesterday, the children in year 5 wrote instructions for their ice cream dessert and designed and produced a poster and name card. They have all chosen their ingredients for their mouth-watering creation and are looking forward to it being tasted and judged tomorrow.
On Friday, the girls in year 5 got a visit from Turves Green Girl’s School. They told them all about life at secondary school and gave them a lesson in marbling. They also showed them how to use textiles and paints to make cards. The children really enjoyed it and can’t wait to go and visit the school this Friday.
Year 5 have started their new Art project this week. The children are learning how to create Art using digital media. They have been given a program to trial to see what effects that can come up with. Later in the week, they will be editing a photograph that they have taken themselves. I’m sure you’ll agree, the results are pretty impressive.
Year 5 are thoroughly enjoying their Art topic this term – creating country scenes. They have created different shades of Autumn colours, practised 3D effects and had a go at drawing trees by studying them out on the field.
Today Year 5 were introduced to their artist for art week – Ansel Adams. They discussed how he is a photographer who works with black and white photos and usually captures events of nature.
They then completed a couple of activities using Ansel Adams as inspiration. One consisted of painting with a piece of string and the other was creating patterned landscapes. Both of these activities were completed in a grey scale theme. The children had lots of fun and produced some really fantastic work!
In Art, Year 5 have started a unit based on collage. We started by discussing what collage is and looking at the work of Henri Matisse. We then moved onto the artist Beatriz Milhazes. We have discussed and evaluated her work before having a go at a piece ourselves! In today’s lesson we completed our backgrounds made of lots of rectangular shapes and made our collage apps, ready for stamping on top!
Today the boys and girls went to visit Turves Green secondary school. The girls day was packed full of fun activities.
We started with a cooking lesson, where the girls all learnt how to bake cookies (most of them went for chocolate chip!). The girls were brilliant at following the instructions given and even had a go at washing up their equipment at the end of session.
We then had a little break with drinks and snacks before moving onto the next lesson which was Art. The teacher told the children all about tie-dying and it’s history. The children then completed tie-dying, but with tissue paper rather than fabric, it worked brilliantly!
Finally, we all went outside and watched a small science experiment, it consisted of bottles and foam arrows being suited in the air, it was real fun to watch!
Overall the girls had a fabulous day, they had a brilliant time and behaved sensibly at all times. Well done girls!
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.
