Andy Goldsworthy


Flamingoes have been looking at the work of Andy Goldsworthy. 

The children paid close attention to the shapes and patterns within his work. 


Using their own natural materials the children created their own piece of art work in response to Andy Goldsworthy. 

Using Andy Goldsworthy 'lines' technique the children recreated his work.


Flamingoes had lots of fun using the different resources and placing them in different lines. 

Richard Long 

The children had lots of fun comparing and discussing the work of Richard Long. 

The children played close attention to his methods and approaches to circle making. 


Flamingoes created their own pieces of work using the overlapping technique to create circles. 

Patrick Heron 


This week the children have been focusing on 'hot' and 'cold' colours. 

Using art work created by Patrick Heron the children discussed the different colours and how they go from hot to cold. 


Take a look at our amazing work to show the 'hot' and 'cold' colours.

Imagination and exploring 


The children have been using their own imagination to create a bird's nest. Using natural materials the children worked in groups to create a nest. 


The children placed the eggs carefully on soft materials. They then used natural materials thinking carefully about placing soft, smooth and warm materials close to the eggs.

Selecting and sorting


Letter shape collages


The children selected different materials to stick onto the letter shape.


The children carried out an assessment piece to show their understanding of learning from the last few weeks. 


The children took part in a carousel which allowed them to complete different pieces of art work based from the last sessions to show their understanding and to help achieve the different learning objectives. 


The children had lots of fun taking part in the different art activities showing their amazing art skills. 


The children explored mark making with 4b and 6b pencils & pastels to find how many different marks can be made. The children created different patterns and textures. 


The children selected from found natural and made materials to make different tools for mark making. They had lots of fun experimenting with the different tools. 


The children looked at previous marks and then selected a  mark to be used within each shape.

The children used scrap paper to apply on their page and then draw around different objects to look and discuss the marks made on different surfaces. 



The children looked carefully at a range of simple objects. The children traced around each object’s outline with their index fingers in the air. Then, they transferred the shape by drawing it again with the finger onto a piece of paper. Finally, drawing the shape on the paper.



The children have been using their brush strokes techniques to show the different houses of the three little pigs. 

Using the correct colours the children had to use different brush strokes to show straw, bricks and sticks. 


Following from previous learning, the children used their brush strokes techniques to help create curves for the hungry caterpillar. 

The children used the three primary colours to create different representations of curve for the caterpillar.
