Railway Children Train Sketches
As part of our work on 'The Railway Children', we followed an online tutorial to draw a steam engine. The results were fantastic - can you find your artwork in this gallery? Some of the train names were very inventive!
In our topic of Changes in Term 6, we have been manipulating photos in software to change them. Take a look at our gallery at some of the amazing effects we have created. We have also learnt how to select part of a picture and then crop it. Some of these look like oil paintings (but actually the computer did all the hard work!). Can you find your work here?
We also used layers to send Mr Trodd on an exciting adventure. He ended up being pulled into a lot of portals! In one picture, he also got a new hairstyle (thanks Sonny and Hatice!). See if you can spot it!
Reduce! Reuse! Recycle! display
Here is a lovely display sharing some of the work during our topic last term about Recycling.
Reduce! Reuse! Recycle! Eco Bags
Look at the fantastic Eco bags we made in DT as part of our topic on Reduce! Reuse! Recycle! We worked really hard sewing and painting them, and they look amazing! Can you find your design? Which one catches your eye?
Creative Homework - Volcanoes
We had some amazing creative homework this term all about Volcanoes. Just take a look at this video to see artwork, leaflets, posters and models (some of which even erupt!). Well done everyone and thank you to everyone at home who helped to create these vicious volcanoes!
Creative Stone Age Homework
Take a look at our creative home learning - making Stone Age cave paintings!
As part of our work on the Stone Age, we made some stunning silhouettes of Stonehenge. We began by making a background wash to create a sunset effect. Next, we used torn pieces of black sugar paper to create our own versions of Stonehenge. We tore the paper to give a rough edge - more like stone. Take a look at the fantastic final products!
We have recently completed some displays in the corridor outside our classroom. Take a look!
Creative Homework for Term 1
One of the books we have studied is 'Mouse, Bird, Snake, Wolf'. In this book, the children made a wolf from things they found in the forest. Mr Trodd set the challenge of making a model or picture of an animal that uses objects from nature. We also read the book 'Belonging' where the whole story is told through the view from one window. Mr Trodd challenged the class to create a view through one the windows at home.
There were some fantastic pieces of work completed as you can see from these photos! Well done everyone! Thank you to all the family members who helped at home.
Inspired by our book in English ('Belonging' by Jeannie Baker), we made some art work using pastels and collage using real bits of trees collected from the playground to create views from our school windows. Can you spot where they have been used? It was a lot of fun!
Have a look at some of the homework we created about our class during the Summer holidays!
