In Art P6/7, have been looking at the skill of water colour painting.
We have looked at a number of skills; how to shape the brush to apply paint, how water affects the paint, how can water be used to remove paint and how the paint can look darker by adding the same colour on top.
We were able to go outside into the playground to use the beautiful Autumn colours to practise the skills we have learnt in the classroom.
We will continue to work on our painting skills and use the changing environment as stimulus for our art.
It was great to visit the Orchard to pick what has turned out to be a bumper harvest.
Calculating the harvest and using Google sheets allowed the class to produce graphs to show the increase in harvest year on year.
It is also true that some of the produce was eaten for the purposes of quality control.
The chance to get outdoors within the class bubble has been one of the highlights of this term. The children have done extremely well in the return to a very changed School environment.
We will continue to celebrate the Orchard through our learning.
Whilst you are not able to come into school just now we thought it would be a good idea to let you see what we are doing in class by sharing lots of photos .
As they say ‘a picture paints a thousand words.’
