This week the children have been very busy developing their art skills. We began by focusing on the different techniques that could be created with oil pastels, watercolour paints and watercolour pencils. Before then, creating our own sunset pictures using one of the techniques we were most comfortable with. We moved onto sketching and the children created some amazing sketches of ships using different shading techniques to enhance their work. We listened to the soundtrack from the Pirates of the Caribbean and created some soundscapes.
Can you remember what they are?
We then split into groups and created some mime drama scenes using this music, discussing the type of actions we could incorporate as the music gets louder. The children were very creative, we even had some walking the plank and being captured!
This week we have also been learning our songs for our Key Stage 2 Christmas performance. I am very proud of how quickly we have learnt our songs – even Mrs Higgins said we were the best this week! Lets keep up the good work!
And just a final, WELL DONE to all of Year 3 for their hard work this week!
