Year 1 – Polar Bears

Year 1 created Polar bears using chalk and charcoal…they really are too cute not to share!


Year 2 Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Year 2 listened to Dohnanyi’s variation on a Nursery theme, which was Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.  They then mixed red and blue together to create a night sky.  They added a star and ladder and then ‘Reached for the star!’


Year 3 Blanket for Baby Jesus

Year 3 designed their own patchwork blanket for Jesus.  Their only criteria was that each section had to be unique, just as we are.

The colourful designs created by the children really are fit for a King!!

Year 5 – Ice Skaters and Snow Scene cards

Year 5 had a very creative morning!  After watching the pantomime they turned their attention to creating beautiful Snow Scene cards.  They also had a photograph of their face which they glued onto an ice skater which they decorated and attached to a lolly stick. The children then used a paper plate to create an ice rink, which they also decorated.

The results were truly spectacular!


Year 3 Christmas Baubles

Year 3 made Christmas baubles, where each one had to be different.  Look how bright and colourful they are.

Year 6 Foodbank

The Year 6 children created some labels for tin cans that were then filled with treats, for Waterlooville Foodbank.  They also made some wonderful gift tags to accompany some of the cans.  Their art work was thoughtful and considerate…and looked amazing!

Home Learning

I’m always excited to see the art work that the children have created at home, especially when they have applied a new skill that they have learnt during their art lessons.

Here are some examples:

Beautiful butterflies!

Molly and her grandad made a doll and a selection of clothes to go on the doll.

Amelia’s artwork was inspired by our recent project about the artist Keith Haring.


Faith did her own Street Art linked to homelessness.

Year 4 Starry, Starry Night

Year 4 children, in Koala class created their own Bethlehem scene, inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry, Starry Night.

The concentrate really well over two Art lessons and produced some  very thoughtful work


Year 1 Christmas Dream Catchers

During their Art lesson, Year One learnt about Dream Catchers. Turtle class then talked about their Christmas Dreams and then made their own Christmas Dream Catcher.

As you can see, they look wonderful!
