Chinese New Year 

 

To celebrate Chinese New Year, the children completed their own drawing of the animal that represented the year they were born. After this, we also looked at famous 'Willow' patterns by Thomas Minton so they could design their own and compare to his.

Independent Sketching - Self-Portraits 

 

After acquiring the skills throughout the Art sessions, the children then worked independently to sketch their own self-portraits. Using knowledge organisers and previous work from Year 4, the children also compared their work to Hans Holbein and Leonardo da Vinci. 

 

One child explained, "I remember using shade in Year 4 which helped with my portrait and looking at the work from Han Holbein has given me excellent ideas."
