Autumn

 

Drawing

The children have studied the artist Gustav Klimt. They have looked at his use of symbols, shapes, patterns and colour. We have focused on his work on trees. The piece of artwork below is called 'The Tree of Life'. The branches twist, twirl, turn and spiral towards the sky. It shows the connection between heaven and earth.

The children have recreated Klimt's swirls and spirals in different ways.

The children then drew their own trees in the style of Klimt by including swirly and curly branches that reach the sky. They then used watercolour paints to complete their artwork.

The children also used chalks and oil pastels to draw pictures of woodland toadstools.

Painting
During this term the children have also learnt about painting. They have identified the primary and secondary colours and practised colour mixing. They have also created some bonfire and firework paintings to link to our History topic on the Gunpowder Plot.

Teddy Bear's Picnic

The children have been looking at different types of food this half term. They were given a challenge to create a biscuit for a teddy bear's picnic. The children worked in small groups to carefully follow a recipe to bake a biscuit. When decorating their biscuits everybody did a super job of carefully counting their chosen decorations. The children were very proud of their biscuits and they looked delicious!
