Here are photos of our final art work, a street inspired by Gaudi in mosaic. The children worked as a group to produce the whole street and worked independently on their own sections.

We also wrote Remembrance poems today.

Year 4 Emperor Penguins have shown great development of their artistic skills this week by creating a portrait of the Queen in the style of Picasso. They used his vibrant colours and sectioned the face into various shapes, before adding the facial features. They are very proud of their work!




Y4 art 2We also did some tile printing (as they enjoyed this so much in their previous Indian art topic) to create our bunting. They carved a design into a polystyrene tile, then printed it onto triangular paper using red or blue ink. We also made small tile prints and turned it into the big 1952-2022 you see on our classroom window.

Year 4 Blog - Spring Term 2023

Welcome to the Year 4 Spring term blog!

Year 4 took part in an electricity workshop last week. They had to create circuits with bulbs and then include a switch. They also carried out an investigation into a range of materials to see which were conductors and which were insulators. We also discussed renewable and non renewable resources for electricity and the children were able to create a circuit with a motor and a propeller and a solar panel.

This half term our focus in art is to develop our skills using watercolours. We are drawing inspiration from the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. We started by experimenting with the water colours and finding out about the artist- we then learned how to create a wash. We developed our water colour use further in the next lesson and experimented with changing tone like Mackintosh does in his watercolour flowers. We did this by adding more water/using a dryer brush, and trying to mix colours with white or black to see what effect that had. We also annotated our work with what we did and how we felt about it.

This is an example of the final piece which shows a culmination of using watercolour, making different tones using white/black/more water/less water and colour mixing.

Year 4 Blog - Summer term 2023

Welcome to the summer term!

Year 4 have been busy recently!

In Art the children have been learning about Indian art and have designed their own patterns to use in printing. They carved their design into a polystyrene tile and rolled printing ink onto it to create a repeated pattern with their tiles. This will lead into a final project piece next week.
