Nursery Multicultural Week
Within Nursery we explored the fascinting culture of China. As part of this immersion we completed a display focusing on the vibrant colours of the well-known Chinese dragons. We made fire breathing dragons out of cups and then used tissue paper to create layers of colourful skin. Afterwards we then ripped the tissue paper in different sized strips to make it appear as though the dragons were breathing fire!
In addition to our display we created some lovely transient artwork, also exploring the textures and colours of the dragons. We also experimented with designing shakers that could be used in the lively parades to warn off the bad and welcome the good during the New Year.
Year 5 Brazilian Artwork
During multi-cultural week the pupils used the work of Beatriz Milhazes as inspiration for their own brightly coloured designs. We looked at the shapes and colours we could see in her work and used this to help design our own patterns.
They look very bright and creative and we are very pleased with the results.
Year 2 enjoyed studying animal patterns during their art lessons, which were based on the animals they had seen on their trip to Chester Zoo. The children looked closely at the colours and textures of the animal patterns, before recreating them on paper using wax crayons and paints.
