Zoom Art Lesson with the Whitworth Art Gallery!

On Wednesday year four had the pleasure of being the first school to trial a zoom art lessons with an artist and the Whitworth Art Gallery.

We tried loads of different sketching techniques with pencils and colours and developed new skills taught by the artist. They passed on a few tips such as focussing more on what you are drawing rather than your page and to have confidence and trust in your skills.

We had so much fun and we look forward to working with the Whitworth in future.

Many thanks to the Whitworth, Steven and Luke from 4KS.

The Witches Song by William Shakespeare.

Today we read The Witches Song by Shakespeare and tried writing our own.

We put on some mood lighting, played some cauldron bubbling sounds and became our own Shakespeare’s.

Black History Month!

This week in 4KS we began learning all about Black History Month, we had some very interesting lessons and discussions.

On Thursday 1st October it marked the first day of BHM. We looked at the artist Tam Joseph who was famous for his art piece called 'School Report' which depicts self portraits and states the stereotyping he faced as black teenager. We discussed stereotyping and from this created our own art based on Tam Joseph's piece. 

Below is a display in our classroom showing our amazing work, have a look!
