Year 5 mixed up their classes at the very start of the term in order to try out 4 unique techniques for arts week. Marbling, ripped-paper collage, water colour painting and silhouetting were practised before the each child decided which techniques they wanted to combine for a final piece of Remembrance art. As you can see the final results were spectacular and they were very proud of their work. We also used marbling and silhouettes as part of our whole school ‘Remember’ big art contribution, which can be found on display in the Laurel Room (Old Library). Our new learning has been introduced, with the children getting a taste for just how big the universe really is when looking at the ‘Scale of the Universe’ website. We also zoomed in on our home planet using Google Earth and focused on some of the key man-made landmarks, as well as their locations, which will form the start of our geography focus this half term.
