What we’ve been up to…

Pyramid in Year 5

Last week Year 5 have been very busy building this stunning pyramid out of sticks and elastic bands. The finished work was wonderful and worthy of the Louvre Pyramid.

French Surrealism in Year 5

Last month in Year 5, we studied Surrealism as part of our French Art Project. In surrealism, the subjects look like out their out of reality, in fact some surrealist artworks are inspired by the artist’s dreams. The movement made artists find beauty in the unexpected and the uncanny subjects. The world surrealist suggests beyond reality, it’s a combination of both realism and imagination too. After having looked at different artists of this period, the children made some collages and a surrealist box inspired by The Listening Room by Rene Magritte. What beautiful artworks!
