This term Emerald class will be learning about shape, symmetry and continuing with number work. Within shapes we will be looking at and recognising 2D and 3D shapes and learning about their properties and what these properties mean.
As well as shapes we will be learning about symmetry and what it means. We will be using mirrors to find lines of symmetry within shapes and drawing other half’s of pictures to make them symmetrical.
During terms 3 and 4 we will be looking at biographies of different artists which link to our topic. We will be looking at key information about each Artist and writing a biography about them. This will then lead on to the pupils writing a biography about themselves, discussing their interests, likes, dislikes and aspirations for the future. Please see Topic session to view the artists we are studying.
During term 3 & 4 we will be looking at 4 different artists work and trying to recreate our own interpretations of the pictures using the techniques the artist use. We will be starting off by looking at Jackson Pollock and learning how to do drip painting as well as splatter painting using different tools. We will then look at Matisse, Andy Warhol and Banksy, looking at their art work and how they created their pictures.
Linked to our topic of artists and shape we will be looking at Rangoli pattern’s and looking at the festive of Holi. We will be making our own Rangoli patterns and using different materials to create these.
