Abstract Art

Day 1

First, we all looked at Wassily Kandinsky’s abstract artwork.

Then we took inspiration from his most famous pieces to create a success criteria. We decided we should use bright colours, black lines and shapes.

Afterwards, we listened to Holst’s Mars, thinking carefully about how the music made us feel.

Lastly, we created our own abstract art, trying to replicate Kandinsky’s style, whilst trying to express the emotions we felt from listening to the music.

 

Day 2

Firstly, we looked at each other’s painting and gave feedback: thinking about what we liked (whilst looking at our class success criteria) and how they could further improve.

Next we planned how to act on the feedback so that our work was even better.

Then we were able to create our improved paintings.

 

Please see below for pictures of our art.

We designed and built K’nex carnival floats.

In our Science lessons this term, we are learning about forces. So far, we have learnt about air and water resistance.

We love learning through experiments and hands on activities so we designed an experiment with paper spinners to find out more about air resistance. Also, we learnt about water resistance by designing and building plasticine models that would float or sink.

As part of our Ancient Greece topic, we have been reading lots of Greek Myths. After reading Pandora's Box, we drew the creatures that came out of the box and used our imagination to describe them. Here are a couple of examples.
