FIRE HOUSE CHALLENGE

  • In the Art House challenge, we looked at female artists and explored their life before having a go at replicating their impressive works. We split up into our phase house groups and explored the following artists: Year 1 & Year 2: Yayoi Kusama – we used poster paint to create a background colour then used acrylic paint to create a dotted pattern. Year 3 & Year 4: Hilma af Klint – we used oil pastels to create blocks of colour in a mix of different sized circles. Year 5 and 6: Gouache – we used water colours to create the transition of colour in the flower. We painted the backgrounds first then used a water colour wash. The children all worked exceptionally hard on their artist’s replications and showed real artistic flair. Well done everyone!

 

  • On Thursday 14th and 15th December we had a Christmas Fayre house challenge. Each house had to make crafts and items to sell at the Christmas Fayre on the Friday afternoon. The children all worked hard like Santa’s elves to try and be the winning house. Water house made snowman popcorn, reindeer hot chocolate and snowman marshmallows. Earth house made iced biscuits, rice crispy cakes and had a guess the Christmas trees name. Fire house made hook a bauble, rice balloons and Christmas tree books. Ice house made sweet cups, cupcakes and baubles. We all had lots of fun and were proud of our houses teamwork. It was wonderful to see how many parents came to purchase the items the children had made.
