What fun, making the classroom into hidey holes and dens and sharing with our friends. We were treated to the relaxing music of a guitar as we played this afternoon. What a great day.
We are going to be finding out about the artist David Hockney this week and one of the things he has done is make pictures from lots of photos. We had a go at making our own by using Big Huge Labs and changing some of the photos from our Bute Park trip.
We have tried different background colours, frames/no frames and a different number of polaroids on a variety of chosen photographs.
We think they are pretty amazing! We hope you like them.
This week we looked at some of Van Goghs paintings. Van Gogh painted several versions of Sunflowers and we looked closely and tried to imitate his style. We used acrylics which are thicker than the paint we usually use and it dried quicker too! This meant we could add splashes on top of the painting.
We walked to Bute Park today to do our Science. We looked at trees and made sketches of them. Then we found a leaf from the tree and measured the length and width and drew it carefully. We made somew bark rubbings and some children measured the width of the tree trunk and estimated the trees height!
Then we looked at flowers further round in the park and made notes about their colour and shape. We drew them and labelled the leaves, stem and flowers.
We had our lunch out in the sunshine and managed to find a bit of time to play in the playground and make dens in the trees.
We were so lucky with the weather and were tired and happy when we came back to school.
