Today we have held our whole school art day, where each class followed the theme of space art in keeping with the year of space.
Reception used pastels and blended them to create the planets in our solar system and learned a rhyme to remember the names of all of the planets.
Year 1 also used pastels and blended the colours together and enhanced them with glitter to create images of galaxies.
Year 2 focussed on images from the Hubble telescope and used hairdryers as a technique to blow the paint across the paper to create their masterpieces.
Year 3 have done lots of learning about planets throughout the day and used pointillism to create their planets.
Year 4 went on a journey into an unknown solar system and created pictures using pastels and blended the colours to create their new planets.
Year 5/6 used Surat’s technique of pointillism to create space art using various paint and paper clips and cotton buds.
