We decided to make 3D models of the toucans from our class book, The tin Forest.
We started by creating a shape using newspaper and then covered this in tinfoil. Take a look at the fantastic models we made below.
Autumn 1 - Prehistoric Painting
This half term Crummock class will be learning about Prehistoric Painting. This will help to support our history topic, Stone Age, which we will be studying next half term.
In this topic the children will learn to:
- Recognise the processes involved in creating prehistoric art.
- Explain approximately how many years ago prehistoric art was produced.
- Use simple shapes to build initial sketches.
- Create a large scale copy of a small sketch.
- Use charcoal to recreate the style of cave artists.
- Demonstrate good understanding of colour mixing with natural pigments.
- Discuss the differences between prehistoric and modern paint.
- Make choices about equipment or paint to recreate features of prehistoric art, experimenting with colours and textures.
- Successfully make positive and negative handprints in a range of colours.
- Apply their knowledge of colour mixing to make natural colours.
Happy Mothers Day
Crummock class used artwork produced by the Japanese artist Hokusai to inspire their own wave art. This linked to our class book The Mermaid of Zennor.
