Acrylic Poppies

 

I am incredibly proud of all of the Year 4 children today. They worked collaboratively to create a canvas per class filled with individual poppies in remembrance of those who died in the war. The children used acrylic inks to create their masterpieces.

Well done to you all! I’m blown away by the high standard of art work you have created.

The paintings will be displayed in the St Nicolas Parish Church for the week running up to Remembrance Sunday before returning to school to be displayed somewhere for all to see!

Creating Abstract Art

 

The children had a great morning exploring the works of Roger Hilton and the techniques he used to create his paintings.

We used charcoal to sketch the large shapes we saw around the school grounds then brought them back inside and applied a mix of water and PVA to add tone and texture to our sketches.

The children mastered this technique and I am incredibly proud of them all! I can’t wait for next Tuesday!

The Blitz!

The children in Class 12 worked brilliantly this afternoon working collaboratively to find facts anoit the Blitz. The children used chromebooks and non-fiction books to help them.

I wonder if you can share a fact you now know about the Blitz with your family at home?

Well done to everyone for your hard work today in all lessons. I have thoroughly loved teaching you all.

Autism Awareness Week Prize Winners!!

I would like to say a big Thank You to all the children and teachers at Green Top for the fantastic work they completed to celebrate World Autism Week during Aspiration Week on the theme of “It’s OK to be Different!”.

We shared stories, learnt how to support a friend with autism and learnt that we a re all different – and that’s OK!

The class activities inspired one year 5 boy to write about his own personal experiences and then share it in assembly!

As a result of our activities, we won a prize from TTS Group – an education supplier – of £150 of resources to support communication and sensory needs! A fantastic prize that will be put to very good use!!
