In September, during our art lessons, we have focused on the work of Peter Thorpe and have based our work on his style. During the planning process, we explored different painting techniques such as: bubble art, marble ink, flecks/clusters of paint, thick textures (mixing sand within the paint), pointillism and glitter paint! We then chose the techniques that would be most effective. Noah in year 4, reflected on the use of marble ink and explained "Although the marbling technique looks cool, you would barely be able to see it on black card so it wouldn't contrast or stand out like Peter Thorpe's work does."
Our topic is entitled, 'Is Space out of This World?' and we have been having great fun gaining new knowledge and understanding about Space. In these pictures we were researching the Moon, during a Science lesson. Laila in year 5 explained, "I learned about the Moon's craters and that they're visible because Earth has processes, like the rivers and trees, that can erase almost all the evidence of what can happen in the past but the Moon doesn't."
