How fantastic do these look. Im actually surprised that you can tell who so many of the characters are in these portraits. Students thought about colour mixing and shading to create these lovely portraits of people who inspire them . They are on display around the school for you to check out.
The year 5/6 students have been working on a unit based on Monocromatic colours. They have had to choose a colour and mix shades and tones using black and white paint.
Their portraits are of influential people that the students think have or are making a difference in our world.
The learnt a technique of transferring an image of one size onto a larger piece of paper using a grid technique and a bit of knowledge from maths lessons.
Like many forms of art it is hard to date back to when they where invented or who may have been the first person or culture to use them. Puppetry and designing or creating of puppets is one of these art forms.
While the general definition of a puppet is that of an object manipulated by someone. Today puppets are widely considered to a type of entertainments for children where as in the past we are discovering that puppets have always held a place in entertainment for all ages.In different cultures puppets have been used to teach lessons, entertain and used to celebrate special occasions.
In art this term we will be focusing on constructing a puppet from a specific country that will work inline with our song for the school concert.
5/6A- Chinese Dragons
5/6C- Roman Soldiers
Have a look online or in some books at the library to see what you can find out about puppets from your chosen country. List three facts you would like to share with your class and write bring these to art next week.
The year 5/6 students have completed their unit of work on monoprinting. A monoprint is a one time print. We used acrylic paint on glass and explored a new tool Gelli Pads. Students then chose their favourite print and framed them using some lovely picture frame folders donated by Deb Joyce. Thanks Deb.

The students in 5/6 have begun to work on a small project that will only last for a few weeks. They have begun Monoprinting. We bought 3 Gelli pads to experiment with and they are fantastic! The students all want a turn and have had great success with the printing on these. Students are learning about ‘health and the human body’ so are required to do a monoprint inspired by a part of the body. Here is a sneak at some of them so far as well as the work in progress.
