Welcome to our class
Art week: Drawing
The children in Avon class have been busy working on their drawing skills. They have explored a range of different drawing materials and have experimented with different ways of making marks. They even found ways to draw outside with natural materials! The children explored different portraiture art, and had opportunities to talk about how they feel when looking at their artwork. We also focused on the skill of self portraiture and how to set out facial features.
They used their skills to draw portraits of some of the famous people they will be finding out about in Topic lessons this term where we are focusing on "Movers and Shakers". It has been a great start to their Art journey in Avon!
For this term's no-electricity day, we explored writing shape poetry. We decided to choose 'Autumn' as a theme for poems as it linked to our school value of 'Nature' and also there were lots of different, crunchy leaves outside for us to explore. We enjoyed looking at the colours outside on the trees, and on the ground and used our different senses to help write our poems. Take a look at some of our poems below!
For our DT project this term, we have enjoyed exploring making bunting. We began by selecting natural materials outside which we threaded onto string. We then started to design and create our decorations for the school Christmas tree later on in the term. We recorded our designs into our Art and Design books, and spent time setting out what we wanted our decorations to look like and the materials that we would need. Take a look at our creations below!
Community visit: Christmas Tree Festival
The children in Avon Class really enjoyed going out into the local community to see the annual Christmas Tree Festival at the church. We saw so many fantastic Christmas trees and we enjoyed trying to find our own school tree with our homemade decorations on! We all walked very sensibly and had the best time! We have been exploring Christmas in our RE sessions this term, and have spent time talking about different traditions around the world. We know that Christmas trees originate from Germany!
