What an amazing first week back for year 4, finished off with a whole day of art!
We started the day with making optical illusions. The children were shocked at how, if they changed their angle, the image changed. The outcome of these were great.
We then moved onto ‘willow patterns’ where the children focussed on a story of their choice. They thought about the key features of their story before planning how these would look onto their plates. They also focussed on how they could change the colour of the blue ink that they were painting with. We established that with just the use of water, we could make the painting look different.
This afternoon, we sculpted sea shapes into soap. This was a difficult task, but with great care and focus from the children, they produced some amazing final soap sculptures! Lots of fish and seashells.
To finish off our lovely art day, we did some still life drawing which the children then coloured using oil pastels.
The children then began to reflect on their day, deciding what they were the most proud of and why. There were lots of pieces of art to be proud of today!
They had such a nice time doing all the different types of skills in Art. What a great way to end our first week back!
