In Years 5 and 6, children planned, practiced and produced pieces of art based on Ancient Egypt.
They collaborated in small groups and each group produced a large sarcophagus using a large box. They examined hieroglyphics and children to wrote their names using the hieroglyphics on aged paper. The children also looked at a range of Egyptian portraits and created their own Egyptian style portraits.Here are some photos.
In Years 5 and 6, children planned, practiced and produced pieces of art based on ‘Victorious Victorians’. They looked at Victorian silhouettes and used a marbling technique to use as a background for their own Victorian silhouettes.Here some photos.
In Years 5 and 6, children practiced drawing a perspective dessert scene, as part of their habitats topic. ‘Perspective’ is the art of drawing or painting what the eye sees. In other words, making two dimensional objects seem three dimensional and create the illusion of distance and depth on a flat surface.Here some photos.
In Years 5 and 6, children created ‘pop art’ posters in the style of Roy Lichtenstein as part of anti-bullying week. They used ‘ben day dots’ and ‘bold line’ techniques using felt pens to design their posters displaying anti-bullying messages.Here some photos.
