KS1 explored the formal element of texture and created rubbings around our school environment.
Children in KS1 began this half term by exploring the formal element of line. They named, drew and invented lines using a range of different drawing implements (pens, pencils, felt tips, charcoal, fabric pens, chalk, oil pastels etc.) on a range of different surfaces (paper, cardboard, concrete, brick, fabric, whiteboards etc.).
We also drew lines whilst listening to music, inventing lines to show how we can all ‘see’ the same piece of music very differently.
Children in Reception have been looking at some of Sandra Dieckmann’s nature-themed artwork. They practised drawing curved lines and used these to sketch petals, flowers and leaves using a range of drawing implements, including pencils, pens, oil pastels, chalk and charcoal.
Children in LKS2 spent the morning in church sketching the Saxon font during their history lesson. They used different shading techniques (crosshatching, stippling etc.) and explored how the presence of the font shows the legacy of the Anglo-Saxons around the Broughton area.
Children in LKS2 have been exploring the differences between shapes and forms, as well as beginning to draw with an awareness of objects being three-dimensional.
Children in KS1 have been drawing on different surfaces with a range of media as part of their ‘Robots’ topic.
Year 3 have been exploring the life and work of architect, Frank Matcham, linked to their circus topic.
