Before our Easter Bank Holiday weekend we had an art day in each of the classes. Some chose to have a theme of nature.
Year 3 chose Henri Rousseau. They printed the background and used collage to make a rainforest scene.
Year 4 created their own Andy Warhol inspired images using oil pastels.
In the last week before we broke up for the Christmas holidays, we had a school wide Design Technology Day. The children were asked to bring in a shoe box and one or two cereal boxes, and they were tasked with designing a diorama that was based on either a Christmas theme or, alternatively, the book their class was studying in their Power of Reading work. After deigning and building their dioramas, some of the children displayed their work in a whole school assembly.
In Hawthorn Class they are reading "Ten Things I Can do To Help My world."
The children followed instructions and each of them made a bird feeder.
