World War Two Topic
World War Two Art
Year 5 have been busy in Art lessons this term! We started by using oil pastels to create a Blitz scene, cutting out a black silhouette of London to create a skyline. We then learned about the significance of Armistice Day and made our own finger knitted poppies. We've also looked at work by the artist Henry Moore. He is most well-known for his sculptures but during WW2 he drew numerous sketches of scenes from the London Underground, which were used as air-raid shelters. We had a go at replicating these in chalk and charcoal.
Make Do and Mend Art & DT projects
Year 5 and 6 have finished their WW2 topic with a fantastic 'Make Do and Mend' project! Children bought in old clothes or fabric from home and turned them into other wonderful creations. We saw super creativity from all children and were amazed out the outcomes of their projects. Items ranged from cushions and sock puppets to cuddly toys and accessories. Thank you to parents for the donations of materials from home.
