On Tuesday, Robins finished creating abstract portraits in the style of Picasso’s cubism period, using oil pastels. There were some really bright, fantastic and colourful pieces of work.
Shayla – I liked it when we made a portrait crossed with a profile picture and colouring in. Sophie S – I enjoyed learning about the Blue Period and creating our own abstract pictures. I liked it when we combined the technique to draw a guitar. With abstract art, we were able to mix faces together and colour it the way we wanted. Millie – I enjoyed painting in the style of Picasso’s Blue Period.
Today, Robins have been identifying how animals and humans look like their parents. They discovered three facts that living things, not born from eggs, have in common.
1. They have fur or hair
2. They have legs.
3. They are tiny copies of their parents.
Next, the class played a game where one child named a living thing and their partner had to decide whether it was from an egg or born alive. Robins were able to list living creatures that had been born alive and also some from eggs.
Finally, they created a list of living creatures to research which they were unsure about. These included spiders, crabs, chameleons, bats, wasps, whales and anacondas.
Robins have been using equipment to visualise their addition sums (including exchanging), of up to 4 digit numbers. This has helped them to add two numbers and record their answers using column addition.
