To help them further explore their understanding of volcanoes in Year 3, they have produced some paintings of volcanic eruptions.
In Year 6 the children have been studying William Morris. The children drew objects from nature using sketching and shading techniques. They then used tracing paper to draw a design inspired by his work, before repeating the pattern using translation and reflection.
In Year 6 the children were learning about why we have Remembrance Day. They used charcoal and chalks to produce some Poppy Art.
Art and Design is taught across the whole school and often links in with current topics. Below are some photos of the amazing art that a few of our year groups have been creating. Foundation Stage looked at plants and how they grow and produced some beautiful paintings of flowers, the sun and rain clouds. Year 4 researched, designed and made Roman mosaics as part of their Rotten Romans topic. The children used wooden printing sticks to complete their mosaic, choosing colours and a design. Year 6 have been studying William Morris as an example of a Victorian artist. The children researched his designs; chose their favourite one and drew a replica using pencils and they then drew their own design, copying the features he used, such as vines, leaves and birds.
