In this topic we are covering lots of different areas of the National Curriculum. We are starting with looking at different materials and their properties. This will coincide with our English work of looking at The Three little Pigs story, as we will make and test which house is made out of the strongest material.
We are then moving onto looking at the artist L.S Lowry and seeing which materials he chose for his artwork. Finally, we will finish this topic by asking where in the world do we come from. This will give the opportunity for the children to learn about local areas and the world around them.
In our creative curriculum lessons, we have been looking at different examples of L.S Lowry's artwork. We looked at the similarities and differences in his paintings and noticed that he likes to paint busy areas with lots of buildings and houses in the background. We talked about why this might be and then had a go ourselves.
Below is a song we listened to while doing our pictures. The children loved singing along and discussing all the 'matchstick' people in the paintings.
