Year 1 - Our Advent Wreath - December 2022

YEAR 1 ART - 17th FEBRUARY 2022

In Art, we have been learning about the artist William Turner. We used one of his paintings as inspiration for our own paintings. It was called The Snowstorm. We used large paper and experimented drawing and painting on a big scale. We had a great time!”

We love reading!

“We love books in Year 1! We love going to the library each week and sharing our favourite books. This week, it was Ben's turn to choose a book. He shared it with us. We also read a chapter of our class book, which is called Molly Rodgers to the Rescue. We have been learning about pirates and love to hear some pirate stories.”

Art Creations - February 2023

“We learnt about the artist J.M.W. Turner in Art and found out how he sketched and painted. We looked at his sketches and his painting 'Snowstorm'. We learnt that J.M.W Turner was unusual in that he enjoyed painting outside, which not many people did when he was alive. We decided that we would paint outside too and use our sketching and paint mixing skills to paint our own pirate ships. We saw how big some of Turner's paintings are and used large paper to understand how this can be different to sketching and painting in our sketchbooks. The children were very proud of their work.“ Miss Fulker
