In June we had a French day. The children were involved in a range of activities, including learning how to speak French, painting, food tasting and playing French boules. The Year 1 children used pointillism to create pictures of the Eiffel tower and painted pictures after looking at the Japanese Garden by Claude Monet. In Year 2 the children studied how impressionist artists used paint to reflect light and seasons. The children then used watercolours to create paintings of the sea and cliffs, trying to create representations of the weather and time of the year. Children in Key Stage 2 investigated how to make a strong structure and built models of the Eiffel tower. They also studied the work of Matisse
Below is a sample of the work the children produced.
