In Art and Design, Year 5 have been studying the paintings style of Georgia O’ Keeffe. We have been learning how to paint enlarged flowers. We also learned how to make secondary and tertiary colours by mixing primary colours (red, blue and yellow).
In addition to this, we used black paint for shading and white for tinting. We also learned to use a contrast of warm colours like red and orange with cool colours such as blue and purple.
We had fun painting!

Reception class have enjoyed the redevelopment of the allotment area, which now includes a mud kitchen, water-wall, cosy area, planting area and play area. Many parents generously donated items for the allotment development and the tyre shop opposite the school kindly donated some spare tyres.
Reception class explored the topic of ‘Families’ through various activities, such as; reading stories about family members such as, ‘My Mum’ and ‘My Dad’ by Anthony Browne, making their own family tree at home with their parents, taking part in a ‘show and tell’ about their families where they presented their family trees and photographs of their family and a class discussion on the different languages we all speak in reception class.
