We are having a real focus on using sketchbooks as a place to be creative and explore our ideas. As well as researching different artists, we test out different styles, media and colour combinations. We evaluate our own work and add annotations and labels to show what we are proud of, what techniques we have used, what worked well and what didn't work so well. Everything we do is part of our creative journey so we don't rub anything out.
4R created this worship tree using black paint outline and fine liners. They practised Zentangles in their sketchbooks before choosing the most effective designs for their leaves. On each leaf is their hopes and dreams for the future.
Year 6 have used their creative design skills to produce informative double page spreads. Some children have also used their research to create amazing projects at home.
We use art to support our learning in many different subjects and often children create their own art projects as part of their homework.
Year 5 and 6 have recently wowed the rest of the school with their double page spreads in Science and History.
