Year 3’s themed Learning topic this term was ‘Different places, similar lives’. During this topic they have been comparing their lives to the lives of children in Zambia and Switzerland. In Art, they learned about the Swiss artist Paul Klee and reproduced landscapes of the countries they had been learning about in the style of Klee. They also looked at adinkra cloths from Ghana and dyed fabrics and printed their own symbols onto them to create their own adinkra cloths.
Year 4 have been learning about the ‘Active Planet’. They created their own fantastic volcano images by printing with lino cuts on marbled backgrounds. They also created digital pieces of art work through layering different images.
Parents were invited to come and admire their hard work, as well as teachers and children from other year groups. Their art work looked fantastic and there was a lot of positive feedback from parents and children alike.
Look out for more art exhibitions from other year groups throughout the year.
