Bowsland Green Primary School’s Art Day 2018
On Monday 29th January 2018, the children at Bowsland Green Primary School enjoyed Art Day.
Each year group in the school was given an artist to study. They had to learn 3 facts about the artist, and then try to recreate one of the artist’s most famous pieces of work.
Year R studied Jackson Pollock. He’s an American artist who was born in 1912. The children loved recreating his piece called “Convergence”. They also had so much fun, which is a key element to producing art work!
Year 1 studied Henri Matisse. They were amazing at recreating his work of “Drawing With Scissors”. Henri Matisse was a French artist who was born in 1869. The children had a great time, and the results were fabulous.
In Year 2, the children studied Pablo Picasso – a Spanish artist born in 1881. The children rose to the challenge of creating “Face Of Woman”, and produced some excellent pieces.
Year 3 studied Vincent Van Gogh, a Dutch artist born in 1853. The children thoroughly enjoyed creating “Starry Night” in a variety of ways. The results were stunning.
Year 4 were given the artist Andy Warhol to study. He was an American artist who was born in 1928. The children were fantastic at recreating his piece entitled “Campbell’s Soup Can”. They really paid attention to detail, and that certainly paid off.
In Year 5 the children had the enormous challenge of creating “The Lugubrious Game” by Spanish artist Salvador Dali. He was born in 1904 and was an impressionist artist. The work produced was very impressive.
Year 6 studied Leonardo Da Vinci, an Italian artist born in 1452. He was the artist that was born the longest time ago. The children found it very interesting to try and recreate the “Mona Lisa”. They did extremely well, and produced some fantastic results.
The children and staff had an amazing ART-y day. We are all looking forward the next one!
What a super Christmas Fair we have had today! A huge ‘thank you’ must go to the Friends of Bowsland Green who have organised a really fun event this weekend. Many of our younger visitors enjoyed going on an elf hunt, along with meeting Santa and taking part in craft activities. It was lovely to see lots of our visitors leave with fabulous glitter tattoos, face paint and intricate hair plaits. Watch this space for an announcement of the final total raised!
Year 5/Reception Buddies
Children in Year 5 got together with children in Reception to start their year-long buddy project at the beginning of October. With the aim of developing interpersonal skills and supporting our younger pupils in their transition to Year 1 next summer, they paired up and spent an afternoon creating bookmarks for library books and sharing some of their favourite reads. It was lovely to see Year 5 children mentoring their partners in such a caring and considerate manner, and we’re all very excited to see where our buddy project takes us!
The Big Draw at Bowsland Green!
Our theme this year for Big Draw was DOODLES! All the children had a fantastic time producing their own doodle page after watching a tutorial video by a champion doodler. We combined all the individual doodle pages to create Bowsland Green’s Big Draw. Miss Williams was very impressed at the high level of doodling, and thinks the final piece looks incredible! Do you agree?
