Curiouser and Curiouser (2020-2021)
We have started this year with an amazing Federation experience based on 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' by Lewis Caroll. Please see the rationale below for more details.
Here are a few photos from our hook day. The staff surprised the children by dressing up as characters from Alice in Wonderland.
Class three have been focussing on chapter 6, the part of the story where Alice meets the Cheshire cat. For our hook, we had a go at making UV torches and tried to find the cat's smile hidden around the classroom.
In our art, we have been investigating colour. Firstly learning the primary, secondary and tertiary colours and then having a go at colour mixing to create the colours we need for our paintings.
We have been looking closely at how artists use brush stroke techniques and developing our skills with this. We practised making brush strokes, then used them to blend colours and finally used the inspiration of Starry Night by Van Gogh to imitate art work that uses brush stroke techniques.
