Welcome to Year 5

Class Teacher: Mr T Watts

This term, Year Five will be delving deep into the world of collage, exploring different techniques and learning about influential artists. We will be exploring colour and practising the seemingly simple tasks of cutting and sticking to improve our work. Not only that, we’ll be studying the work of famous collage artists such as Matisse and Picasso whilst researching their lives and writing biographies on them. As part of the preparation for making our final artwork, we’ll be looking at how resolution has an effect on photographs and collages alike whilst creating our own photo and magazine compositions.

To broaden the children’s knowledge of mosaic making, we hope to visit British Ceramic Tile near Bovey to see how our material is made and to gain inspiration for how to select the right tone, colour and texture to use.

In writing, we’ll be looking at biographies and writing our own information leaflet on The Ness, to go with the final collage we’ll be creating of Shaldon’s famous landmark.
