During this term, we are planning to visit one of Britain's greatest heritage sites: Quarry Bank. We will be bringing along our sketchbooks hoping to capture the woodlands, gardens and meadowland of this National Trust site. Our sketches will hopefully transport you to a fresh spring garden and help to shake off those winter blues...
Antoni Gaudi Lizards
Working with a professional artist to create Gaudi inspired lizards was an enriching experience for children. Not only were they able to receive expert knowledge and guidance in how to create their sculptures, but also they were given the confidence to express their individual creativity when making artistic choices for their unique designs. This was an excellent opportunity for children to make connections in their learning and enhance their understanding of Gaudi's influence on the architecture of Barcelona.
World Book Day - We Are Writers
In preparation for World Book Day and the publication of this year's We Are Writers books, children visited our local library to emplore the artwork used for different book covers. This was an enriching way for children to learn about the layout, composition and different styles used in a wide variey of book covers in different genres of writing. This helped to provide children with ideas for creating their own book covers designs for our infamous 'We Are Writers' books.
