The children shared their geographical skills when drawing a world map on the playground. Demonstrating their knowledge about the equator, continents and the Northern and Southern Hemisphere.
Penguin class have learnt all about how to create light in paintings with the help of one of our parents and local artist Mr Mason. The children were shown step by step how to create a picture, looking carefully at shading and colour tones to create the light. The masterclass has come at the end of the unit of work as the children have been studying these techniques in school. They have been looking the painting The Calling of St Matthew by Caravaggio that uses particular painting techniques to capture light. The children had a fabulous day as you can see from the photographs below.
The children's learning has been bought to life this term by them being transported back in time to the stone age. The children spent the day in the forest building shelters, foraging for food, hunting wild animals, making stone age weapons and enjoying a stew. I wonder if any of them fancy being a stone age child?
