An Arty Week

 
 
We've had a busy but brilliant week. The highlight was our whole school Art Day, as a result of which an art gallery is displayed in the hall. 
 
Class 1 focussed on the art of Oliver Jeffers, who writes and illustrates children's books such as 'How to Catch a Star', 'Lost and Found' and 'The Day the Crayons Quit'.  The children looked closely at his work to explore his style before choosing 3-4 of their favourite illustrations. Next, they used their sketchbooks to come up with ideas for their own illustrations, based on Oliver Jeffers' ones.  To create the background, children washed their paper with paint before sponging watercolours onto it. Finally, they added the detail using oil pastels.
 
The children are very proud of their work, which you can see below.

P.S. A new homework book went home before Christmas. Please ensure homework is done and the book is handed in every Thursday, so that I can glue in the following week's homework and spellings. Thank you.
