Creating 3D effects

In Art we have been creating 3D effects with viking brooches by using card, string and foil. We had to think carefully about how we would like our pattern to be and we then decorated our brooches with gems and sequins.

What have you been creating in Art that is linked to your Topic?

Viking brooches


Last week, we made viking brooches using salt dough. We researched what they would have looked like and then made ours using similar designs. Today we were able to paint them using metallic acrylic paint to make them look even better!

What exciting things have you been learning about this week?

Designing Viking Shields


In Art, we are making our own viking shields. This is linked to our Topic and Literacy work. We started designing our shields this afternoon, looking at patterns and colours the Vikings would have used themselves. We are very excited to start making them next week!

Today in Art we were making our own Egyptian name plates. This is also called a cartouche. We used sand dough to make a flat stone and then carved our names and a message in hieroglyphics. It was lots of fun!

Making cave paintings

We have been busy making some art inspired by cave paintings. We had great fun, starting off by researching some real cave paintings on the iPads.

Did you know that stone age people used to decorate their caves with paintings? Do you know what they used to paint pictures of and what they used for paint?
