Amazing Art at Langton Green
So far this term, the children have been very busy crafting and creating pieces of beautiful artwork. We have all learned new skills along the way and gotten the chance to hone our afore-learned skills too.
Key Stage 1
Key Stage 1 have been very busy applying their knowledge of Frozen Worlds to their work. This resulted in unique decorated igloos which were then inspiration for some descriptive language.
We have also been constructing clay necklaces, Inuits and dream catchers.
Lower Key Stage 2
Year 3 and 4 have produced some amazing artwork showcasing their learning about the Stone Age and Black History Month.
Year 5 looked at Andrew Goldsworthy and produced some inspired outdoor art at Forest School along with some carefully-made trebuchets!
Take One Picture:
Here at Langton Green, we are always striving to cater for all learning styles. Our goal is to teach in a holistic cross-curricular way. They children enjoy using and learning artistic skills across all subjects. To this effect, we here at Langton Green have made the choice to take part in ‘Take One Picture 2016’.
'Take One Picture' is the National Gallery's countrywide scheme for primary schools. Each year the Gallery focuses on one painting from the collection to inspire cross-curricular work in primary classrooms. The challenge is then for schools to use the image imaginatively in the classroom, both as a stimulus for artwork, and for work in more unexpected curriculum areas. National Gallery Education then displays a selection of the work in the annual 'Take One Picture' exhibition at the National Gallery, and on this website.
Our painting of focus this academic year will be Penelope At The Loom And Her Suitors by Pintoricchio, 1509. The expected results will demonstrate: Investigating cross curricular lines of enquiry, processing new skills, making meaningful links to a painting and learning together as part of a community.
