Cherry Blossom Art in Year 3

This week Year 3 have been taking inspiration from the beautiful cherry blossom trees in Japan.

Year 3 have created their interpretations of these unique blossoms using paint and different techniques to apply. Everyone worked hard to stay focused and concentrate on making their images unique – just like the real things!

These beautiful images were then used on our Mother’s Day cards



This half term we are looking at the topic ‘Gallery Rebels’ and finding out about artists and different movements in art. We will be looking at Surrealism  and linking this into our literacy through narrative and poetry.

We started  the topic by turning our book corner into an art gallery. Over half term ,children made sculptures from foil to be hung or displayed in the gallery.

Year 5 Art

In Art this week year 5 have explored the artwork of Henri Rousseau and used his style to create some of their own pieces of artwork. They have carefully planned the background as well as sketched animals which camouflage in the Amazon Rainforest.

Can you spot the concealed animals?

mixing paint in Nursery

The children experimented with using the paints to make different colours.

We made shades of brown to paint the Ark we had made for our Noah’s Ark display.

Purple mixed with white made a lovely shade of purple.

Red and white to make a lovely pink colour.

A lovely bright orange was made by mixing red and yellow.

Art in Year 5

In year 5, the children have been exploring about the Tudors. During Art, we have been looking at the importance of Tudor Roses and what a Tudor rose looks like.

This week, we have sketched and coloured our very own Tudor roses, the children have focused on sketching very carefully and adding detail to their rose.

Take a look at our Tudor roses!


Collage fun in Year 3

After designing their own hero, Year 3 have been busy in creating collages. Everyone has been working hard to recreate their designs using a range of media.

It has been great to see children working together to help each other solve problems and achieve the desired effect. Keep an eye out for the finished pieces

Moon art in Year 5

Year 5 have learnt all about shading and smudging and have been using this technique to create shapes and shadows that can be seen on the moon’s surface. We have used our knowledge of the moon’s craters to make these images. First, we used a viewfinder to choose a section of the moon’s surface. Then we shaded with chalk and smudged with our fingertips to create different effects.

Andy Goldsworthy

This week, the children have learnt about the artist Andy Goldsworthy. They found out that he makes sculptures using natural resources such as leaves, stones, rocks and ice. The children collected different materials and had a go at creating artwork in the style of Andy Goldsworthy.
Here are some photos of their fabulous work:

The fall of Icarus in Year 3

This week on art, Year 3 have been exploring the work of Henri Émile Benoît Matisse  31 December 1869 – 3 November 1954). He was a French artist, known for his use of bright colours.














After reading the Ancient Greek myth Icarus and Daedalus, Year 3 interpreted the events of the myth in their own collages in the style of Matisse’s original print. -The Fall of Icarus. The collages were not as easy as Year 3 initially thought. It took a lot of patience, perseverance and collaboration to achieve the end results.
