Art Week

The children learned about the artist Dan Fenelon during Art Week. Dan uses various materials (paint, pastels, charcoal, pencil, ink) to create 2D and 3D art. His work is inspired by the artwork and patterns found in ancient Mayan temples. The children used paint and oil pastels to create their own version of Dan's artwork entitled "Bird". They practised using a technique called "scraffito". Scraffito is where thick layers of different coloured oil pastels are build up and then a sharp tool is used to scratch patterns into the surface, revealing the colours hidden below. We think you will agree, their finished artwork looks amazing!

The autumn term has been busy! In Science, the children learned about Earth and Space. They visited a Planetarium in the school hall, and created their own sundial investigations to study how the sun appears to move across the sky during the day! In History, the children have been learning all about the Ancient Maya and in English they have been writing an Ancient Maya-based adventure story centred upon on the amazing Jaguar Stones trilogy by J&P Voelkel. In Maths, they have been solving tricky problem solving and reasoning questions by learning to show it, draw it, prove it and explain their answers to a question.
