Year 6 Art

Term 1

This term year ​6 have been busy producing art based on the work of the artist William Morris. They researched the main themes of his work and then had to design wallpaper based around the features of his work. They had to consider if they would like to put a modern twist on their design or keep it more traditional. Finally they had a go at creating a 3D picture incorporating their wallpaper into the room of a house and then evaluated their work. We think they all did an excellent job. Well done Year 6! 

Term 2

Year 6 have been learning about the Victorians and have been reading ‘The Tell Tale Heart’ by Edgar Allan Poe. In art we watched a short video clip showing the story and talked about how the emotions are portrayed and how suspense was built up. We then looked at the illustrations from by Harry Clarke and did our own research in order to help us create some of our own designs. Finally we used scratchboards in order to create our own illustrations of the story.

Term 3

Term 5 and 6

Year 6 worked in teams to research some artists who make sculptures using willow such as Caroline Gregson and Laura Ellen Bacon. They discussed the similarities and differences with their work. They then had to design and make their own woodland animal sculptures and decide how to display them in our woodland area. We had a super selection of animals including a spider, rabbit, mole, snail and badger. The children then invited year 1 to come along and view the sculptures. Next year we are starting Forest School and the children using the area will be able to add some more leaves, twigs etc to the sculptures so that they can develop over time!
