Landscapes

Year 4 Robins looked at landscapes again this afternoon.

Lexi reminded the class what landscape meant: “It is a drawing of outside and what we can see.”
Evie added “It is the land outside.”

They looked at some examples and discussed it was how people could see what other places looked like before photographs were invented.

Year 4 looked at a number of different examples where it was easy to see what time of year it was.
Bright colours captured a summer, sunny day. Dark colours and a black sky showed a stormy landscape.

The children used some great adjectives to describe some of the landscapes:
• bright
• realistic
• colourful

The class then recapped the “vanishing point”.

Demi said “It is when something is far away and you can’t see it anymore.”

After a quick demonstration the children began to sketch out their landscapes…these will be worked on again later this week.
