Saltaire visit

After studying David Hockney’s painting of Saltaire, we visited the village for ourselves. We loved seeing the real painting and we were shocked at how large it was. We then found all the features of the painting in real life and compared them to how they look in the picture. We decided David Hockney certainly uses more exciting colours than the ones we saw!

We we enjoyed exploring the historic village; drawing the bandstand, walking the cobbled streets and Helen even found her own road-Helen Street!

Forebearing- patience

Benjamin brought a secret box from home. He said whoever could open it could have the treasure inside. We all tried to open it, even Mrs Stott! None of us have yet shown the patience to find the trick to get the box open.

 

Sunset silhouettes

After reading ‘Meerkat Mail’ we were inspired to make some African sunset pictures. First we worked on designing our silhouette design. Next we made a sunset using pastels. Finally we painted out silhouette design onto the sunset using black paint.

Here are a few of the finished pieces.
