Thank you for all your wonderful fruits and vegetables that were brought in yesterday. We had a fantastic Art lesson sketching one or two of the fruits and vegetables. We talked about how to paint using water colours. Firstly, we all made sure that we held our paint brushes like we would hold a pencil, then dipped our paint brush in the water before putting it into the water colour paint. Too much water and the water colour paint became too watery. Here are some of our outcomes.
Thank you to those who brought in fruits and vegetables into class 1B Thursday. We had a fantastic Art lesson drawing still life pictures. First we looked closely at the fruits and veg and talked about the different shapes and sizes. Then we had a go at drawing them. We made sure that we didn't press hard with our pencil and drew careful shapes. It was quite tricky so we didn't give up, we tried and tried again. Once we were happy with our drawing, we used colouring pencils to colour our fruits and veg in. We talked about how the fruits weren't always one colour. We discovered that if we press lightly the colour will be lighter and if we press down harder, the colour will be darker. When we coloured, we tried to follow the lines of the fruit so that we stayed in between the lines. By the end of the lesson we all felt much more confident in our drawing skills and felt proud of ourselves.
Next week in 1B, we are going to use paints instead of pencils, so please could you bring in some more fruit and veg on Thursday please.
Have a lovely weekend!
Today The Friendship Elves came to visit 1B. At first they were a little shy because they has heard that some people weren't being kind or friendly on the playground and that some children weren't using kind words. We thought of lots of lovely, kind things that we can say at play times and in the classroom, which encouraged The Friendship Elves to come out and meet us all. We all said hello to The Friendship Elves and told them our names. They are now sat on our window sill listening for children saying kind things, both on the playground and inside the classroom.
Please could every Y1 child bring one piece of fruit or vegetable to school this Thursday 10th, we need to look closely at different fruits and veg in our art lessons,
