During transition, we studied the artist L.S. Lowry. When we came to school, our room was turned into a gallery of some of his most famous works. We completed an artist appreciation sheet where we discussed what we liked about his paintings and how they made us feel. Learning about Lowry’s life was interesting and we discovered some fascinating facts and funny little stories. Finally, we created our own replica pieces of artwork based on one of his paintings using pencils to copy his style and form.
We have all had lots of fun over the past few weeks! First of all, there was some very strange activity around our Year 3 classrooms. All three classes received a stone addressed to them, covered in strange markings but nobody knew where they had come from! The mystery still remains but it gave us a wonderful start to our first topic, 'Tribal Tales'. We can't wait to learn more about this fascinating era of history and will be posting some examples of our very own cave paintings after half term.
