For the Art week theme ‘Natural world’ the children in Year 1 looked at the sculptor Andy Goldsworthy and his creative art using natural materials. After collecting natural materials from around school we then made our own creations.
To begin our Arts Week we looked at and made our own colour wheels. We looked at contrasting and harmonising colours and used two contrasting colours to draw our self portraits. We definitely have some future artists in Year 1!
As part of our dinosaurs topic, the children in Year 1 have been researching and writing about fossils today. They have produced the most amazing and detailed fact files, and some children even made their own fossils at home using salt dough.
