We hope you enjoy this video all about the adventures 1C have been on during our Arts Fortnight, all about The Disgusting Sandwich!
This week we have started to learn our new story, The Disgusting Sandwich, and have done some work to deepen our understanding of what we are reading.
First we looked at the settings in the story and made some 3D maps using paper manpulation skills.
Then we went into the cafe and made some beautiful sandwiches… which we then dropped in the sand pit, dipped in the pond, rode over them on scooters and more! Just like in the story.
We then took a walk in our local area, learning some key features of Alwoodley and road safety, as we walked to the… park!
Year 1 became ACE artists this week as we created a stormy sea background by mixing primary colours. Watch this space as we add to this in the coming weeks..
This afternoon 1C were very excited to receive an exciting delivery from Mrs Johnston, after she had been looking at our blog and wanted to share more clay with us!
To celebrate a fabulous nativity performance to our Year 2 friends, we spend part of our afternoon engaging Team Ant, further developing our clay sketching, using tools for different purposes and having a wonderful time playing with the clay.
The children were challenged, in their pairs, to create some amazing and wonderful things. I wonder if you can work out what some of our creations were.
Comment below if you managed to spot anything you recognised.
This week, Year 1 have been using clay to sketch each other. To make this more challenging, and exciting, we asked our parent to make a pose for us to make using the clay. We had such a lovely time sketching our friends and have learned how to manipulate clay in a variety of different ways.
Over the last couple of weeks, all the Year 1 classes have been exploring ways to create different levels of thinkness and shade using pencils and charcoal. The children have loved being ACE Artists. A particular favourite in 1C was using our fingers to explore charcoal once it was on the page.
Over the past few weeks we have been enjoying looking at sunflowers in our art lessons. We started by sketching a sunflower thinking about using a back and forth technique. Then we painted a sunflower and looked at mixing the different colours to make the shade or colour we needed. Finally, we added other media to our sunflowers to create more detail and add texture.
Over the last couple of weeks, 1C have been creating some of our very own art work inspired by fire. We have used colour mixing with paints and collaging skills to create our own masterpieces.
Today was national No Pens Wednesday in schools. With a focus on oracy and speaking and listening skills, we explored all our usual lessons, but without any pens, pencils or keyboards! Take a look at some of our activities!
1C have been ACE Artists this week as we moved on from continuous line drawing to sketching our friends with clay! We loved exploring the textures, how to mould clay and creating our own sketches.
