Happy 80th Birthday David Hockney!

Our topic this term is 'The Beatles' so in Art we have been looking at the work of artist David Hockney who is 80 this week!

We discovered Hockney was a friend of our other favourite 60s artists Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein and together they helped create Pop Art.

We studied a collection of paintings Hockney created in Los Angeles between 1963 and 1968 called the Swimming Pool series, we especially liked 'The Bigger Splash' maybe because it was a hot day and the pool looked very inviting!

Hockney's paintings inspired us to paint our own swimming pool pictures using an oil pastel and watercolour resist technique. We liked them so much we decided to make them into 'Thank you' cards for our swimming teachers and helpers.

We hope you like them too!

During the Autumn Term, we looked at drawing our own eyes.  This term, we have compared human eyes to dragon's eyes!

Well Done to one of our Snowy Owls for creating a game and raising £4.20 for Comic Relief!  We all had fun playing the game on Friday and winning a prize!



In Art we have been learning about the history of the Faberge Eggs.

We created our own Faberge Eggs by painting polystyrene eggs with metallic paint and then dipping in glitter.   Once dried, we decorated with our own selection of jewels that parents kindly donated.   Don't they look amazing!


Sadly our chocolate theme has come to an end but we can now start thinking about our next exciting adventure learning about Dragons next term!


Wishing you all a very Happy Easter
