As artists, this term Year 1 children have looked at work by Beautrix Potter. The children explored new techniques we can use when drawing, focusing on adding in texture to our drawings through shading. The children worked hard on practising step by step drawing and really enjoyed the story of Peter Rabbit.
As artists, this term the Year 1 children have looked at different work by Eric Carle. They have shared their opinions of his artwork and discussed their preferences with their peers. The children learnt about the primary colours, mixed them to make secondary colours and also worked on creating lighter tints and darker shades of a colour. The children particularly enjoyed using different materials, including tissue paper, to make a collaged picture from an Eric Carle book. As groups, the children worked on experimenting with a range of objects of make different patterns. For their final piece of artwork, the children recreated a picture using all the skills and techniques learnt in this term.
