St Paul's have been very busy since September 2015 and have already created some beautiful and impressive Art and DT pieces. These are just a few examples of the learning that has already taken place this academic year.
Nursery and Reception: Both classes have been busy developing their artistic skills during Child Initiated Play. Reception have been using their alphabet books to practice using different media in their artwork. They have also more recently been learning about observational drawing.
Year 1: Year 1 have created their own treasure maps in their Pirates topic. They have carefully used tea to make their maps look work. The class were also busy baking Oat biscuits for their 'Grandparent's Tea Party' in Autumn Term.
Year 2: During their topic 'The Great Fire of London', Year 2 used oil pastels to create their own artwork of the fire. They expanded an existing painting to do this. The class were also busy building their own cardboard London houses ready to recreate the great fire. In DT the class baked their own bread.
Year 3: At the beginning of Autumn term, Year 3 showed off their artistic talents with their self portraits sketches. More recently the class have been learning about Cafes. Within this topic they have designed and baked their own pizza, designed and created the packaging for it and advertised it with a persuasive poster.
Year 4: In their Egyptian topic in Autumn Term, Year 4 used oil pastels to create images of Tutankhamen, they also used clay to create their own carnopic jars. In Spring, Year 4 have been learning about the Rainforest. They have produced beautiful collages showing the different layers of a rainforest.
Year 5: During the Autumn term, Year 5 were learning about Ancient Greece, in DT they designed and made Greek style pots using clay. In their recent Space topic the class created star constellations using black card, white paint and glitter.
Year 6: Year 6 have recently been learning about Benin. Within this topic they learnt about tribal designs. They then used this learning to design their own tribal masks - the finished pieces are very impressive. The class have also effectively recreated Vincent Van Gogh's painting 'Starry Night'.
