This month in 1st Class, Space and The Moon Landings is our theme! As part of our learning, we are exploring facts and interesting information through an artistic way. We have been very busy creating lots of artworks that show of our design skills as well as our knowledge of space!
The Maple Class were learning about the American abstract expressionist painter Jackson Pollock and after looking and responding to his work, we took inspiration and created our own splatter galaxies inspired by his work!
The Elm Class were learning about the moon landings and used toilet roll holders and lots of decorations to construct their own rocket ships to blast off into space! We were very impressed with the creativity and imagination going on.
Both the Maple and Elm class conducted a chromotography experiment which left us with beautiful new planets! We used markers and water to seperate ink into its component colours and had great fun predicting and exploring the process. Take a look at the pictures below to see all of our space themed creativity!
