It is long overdue, but I thought it was worth posting the fantastic job all students from year 6 did about Picasso.  During the first term we studied his amazing life and work.  The students really enjoyed creating their own self portrait "Picasso Style" using different patterns and color schemes.

Well done!!! You have all done a GREAT work!!!!!

My little Picassos

Throughout the second term, year 6 children have been learning about Leonardo da Vinci´s extraordinary achievements.  We have gathered lots of different information about his life and fascinating work.  Inspired by the masterpieces created using egg tempera I decided to teach the children how to make the real thing.  It is a very easy, straightforward  and cheap way of making your own paint and the results  are amazing.  I DO warn you, it does get a bit messy but it´s worth it.

During this project we have become more aware of our cultural and ethnic backgrounds as well as our physical differences .  We are the same but different at the same time and that is what make us special.

The children have made a traditional silhouette self portrait and a second silhouette "their way"
