Year 4 have been hard at work since our visit to Llandudno.
The children have been using their knowledge of scale, perspective and blending colours to create fantastic sketches based on a photograph taken during our visit. The children voted on their favourite image – The Great Orme, and then all sketched their impression of it.
The following video shows the children rightfully proud in sharing their work with you. Fantastic work for the final time this year! Great job Year 4, and best of luck for next year!
Today we’ve been learning how to draw circles with compasses. We then went on to creating our own patterns. It was a bit tricky at first but then we got it. Great work!
The children moving into Year 6 in September have been introduced to the World War II topic by making model Anderson Shelters. Did you know they were named after Sir John Anderson (the man Neville Chamberlain put in charge of Air Raid Precautions in November 1938) who asked engineer William Patterson to design a cheap shelter that could go in people’s gardens. A simple but ingenious design used by over two and a half million people during the war! The small size of the model – particularly the vegetables- proved a challenge to make but very enjoyable. Look how much fun they had – especially the parents!
On Thursday 6th July, Year 4 visited the seaside town of Llandudno!
In support of our Geography and Art topics, the children had a fantastic time exploring the sea front, pier, and both sand and shingle beaches. We sketched some of the fantastic views for our Coastal Landscapes topic, discussed similarities and differences between Llandudno and Longton and enjoyed a chance to shop on the pier and play on the beach.
The children were brilliantly behaved throughout the day, and the weather was brilliant for us all day. It was definitely a highlight of the year, and a great reward for all of the hard work that the children have put in this year.
Below is a video showing what we got up to. We hope that you enjoy it!
Look at this amazing learning challenge we have received from Willow. She went to Trentham Gardens and found a Jolly Rodger “that’s the name of the pirate flag” what a superstar! Thank you Willow
Year 6 are concentrating extremely hard this morning trying to recreate the famous ‘Whaam!’ picture by Roy Lichtenstein. He was an American pop artist who based this well-known piece of artwork on a DC Comic. It is a staggering 4m long! We wonder how long it took him to finish it?
Following on from our trip to Gladstone Pottery Museum last week we have been designing, making and learning more about the pottery industry that our area is so famous for. We would just like to share some of the highlights of our trip.
On a personal note the children were fantastic both in their enthusiasm for learning and in their behaviour. It was a pleasure to take such an amazing group of children out on a trip.
We have had an exciting morning in Year Two learning all about Andy Goldsworthy! We have collected different natural materials and used these to create pictures of our own – just like Andy the Artist himself!
Can anyone explain their beautiful pictures? Which materials did you choose? Why did you choose those materials? Did you use your materials to create a picture of anything? How would you make your picture better?
We had lots of fun on Friday using templates and paint to create beautiful pictures of the Great Fire of London! The children worked really hard to mix their colours carefully and they cut accurately around their silhouette drawings. I’m sure you will be very impressed with the final result!
Year 5 have been learning about the artist ‘Patrick Caulfield’. We created our own arrangements using photographs of everyday objects and then drew our pictures in his style.
