Penguin Class Exhibition
Friday, 26 March
Last Friday Penguin class had their exhibition and everyone enjoyed it. It started off with the parents taking part in Dingbats and then all of the class joined in with the Blues lead by Mr Knock. We then did a drama about the human body, followed by sports and a game of Pointless. Honey, Callum and Tristan played musical instruments and some other children performed gymnastic. In the end everyone said how good it was.
Thank you to all the children of Penguin class, you worked very hard and a great class team effort! We hope you enjoy looking at the pictures.

The Horsebridge Centre have kindly offered our classes to visit the centre to look at their artwork and for the children to take their sketch books. This week Penguin class visited the gallery, please have a look at the pictures below:
"On Thursday 3rd of December, Penguin Class went to visit the Horsebridge Art Gallery. We met people who talked to us on how to display their artwork and they helped us draw. Everyone had to take their sketch books and a pencil because we were going to draw one of the pictures on display. It was a great experience and we met some of the artists and they helped us, we also saw how they draw and paint." By Tristan

Term 5: Art
Wednesday 20 May
This week we have been exploring life cycles. As part of our learning, we have been looking in detail at reproduction in some typical plants and animals.
In Art, we have been studying flowers and trying to capture the details and textures of the different parts of the plants. Below are some examples of the brilliant pieces we produced.
Tuesday 19 May
Today we looked at Henri Rousseau’s artwork. We looked at how he uses colour, shape and texture to convey the theme of jungle life. The children took inspiration from illustrated books as this is a technique that Rousseau himself often used. The children used three different artistic methods to create their final pieces. They drew their jungle animal in felt tip pen, their jungle landscape in pastels and finally created a collaged border.
