    The Sainsbury Centre

    We had lots of fun finding out about Spanish artists and their work on our visit to the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.

    Our ‘base camp’ room was used in the Avengers film – which looked very space age and hi-tech.

    In the morning a guide showed us work by Spanish artists and we had a go at recreating them.

    We saw a real Picasso sketch, and tried our hand at an Eduardo Chillida collage.

    We explored sketching techniques, collage and rubbing effects.

    Outside we were inspired by the sculptures that we saw.

    The children were keen to sketch works of art in the afternoon that they liked.Everyone had different tastes – although we all agreed that we weren’t too keen on the Francis Bacon work!

    We were also pleased to be complimented by staff and visitors at the centre, who commented on how curious and well behaved the children were.

    A lovely day out!

    We created a micro erosion and weathering time frame! It was wet, messy and lots of fun!

She had the face of a woman, but had poisonous snakes on her head. Anyone looking directly at Medusa would be instantly turned to stone. She was killed by Perseus who saw her reflection in a mirror, to avoid looking at her.

    We role played the story of Medusa...

    Athene and Arachne

    We have been learning about Greek myths and legends. There are many Gods and Goddesses in Greek mythology. We learned about the boastful Arachne. She thought her weaving was far better than the Goddess Athene! Athene was very cross with Arachne’s boastful claims, and was jealous of her weaving skills. Athene wanted to teach Arachne a lesson – so she turned her into a spider! Now Arachne will weave and spin – but nobody will want to see her fine work. We have created our own woven spider webs and used similes to describe spiders. Similes help to add description. The tricks to use are:

    • as a………
    • like a……..
