Reception …The Aliens are coming!

The Reception children are learning about SPACE and are creating their own aliens.  This is the aliens that we made in school today. They all look fantastic…why don’t you have a go?

PLANT ART Year 3 Observational drawings of Leaves

Wow! I think these leaf drawings and Venus fly trap drawing by Matthew are just superb.  It is evident that he really took his time and as a result has made a fantastic detailed job.  Brilliant Matthew!

I love the way that Darcy drew half the leaf from memory and half looking at it really closely.  I can see so much detail in the one she studied closely. Great work Darcy!

It is clear to me that Eva looked very closely as she drew the bottom flower.  There is an incredible amount of detail in it.  Very well done Eva!

Jonathan has used his felt tips to draw his leaf and I think it looks fab!

I just love the colours that Joshua has used on this leaf and how detailed the bottom one is.  Great work Joshua!

Wow! Wow! Wow! Look at this beautiful observational drawing by Jamie.  I can clearly see that he has taken a great deal of time to create this masterpiece!  Itis also evident that he really looked carefully at the plant as he was drawing it.  Well done Jamie! 

Thank you Frankie, for sharing these leaf drawings with us.  They are fantastic!

Oh my goodness I just love these two drawings of leaves by Olivia.  This clearly demonstrates how important it is to look at what you are drawing, as the leaf on the right is so much more detailed. Well done Olivia and thank you for sharing!

These impressive observation drawings have been done by Sasha and I can see that he has really taken his time.  I especially like the way that he has written an explanation of his work. Thanks for sharing this Sasha!


These amazing leaves have been drawn by Matilda and they are very detailed. I love the way that she has cut them out, as it makes them even more realistic!

What a brilliant job Luke has done on his leaf drawings.  It is clear that he has really taking his time to  produce  these amazing observational ‘works of art‘!

Well done Dexie for your fantastic leaf drawings


Wow!  The children in school worked really well this lesson and carefully made observational drawings of their leaves.  Everyone in class agreed that the closer you look at what you are drawing then the more accurate it will be.  Have a look at their wonderful drawings.

and these were our artists of the day

Pop Art inspired Space Art

This is what the children in school created during their art lesson.  They hope it inspires you to have a go!

Oliver was our artist of the day with this stunning piece…

Why don’t you have a go?

Year 4 Tin Foil People Art Gallery

Wow! Mostyn has created this terrific tin foil person in action poses.  Great work Mostyn!

The children who were in school made their tin foil people too! They did drawings first and then made their tin foil person and put it in an action pose.  As an extension activity, they stuck their person on their book (using blue-tac) and drew their shadow. 

I think they all look fantastic!

Introducing Bob!…The fantastic tin foil person created by Ben.  As you can see, one of Bob’s interests is Lego and I think he has a real talent for it, just as Ben has a talent for creating sculptures out of tin foil! Thanks for sharing this with us Ben.

Wow!  What a great start to our art project…. Tin Foil people.  As you can see, Hope has put in a great deal of effort into creating her tin foil person.

This is what her mum said “Hope posed her model and followed the YouTube tutorial but wasn’t happy with her model so we talked about how we could make it better and made a few minor adjustments…..

…..Hope then re positioned it and added hair but still wasn’t happy so made a new one. This one is with hair and a tutu!”

What a wonderful pose Hope and congratulations for perservering – I think they look fantastic.  Thank you so much for sharing these terrific tin foil action people with us, I’m sure you will inspire others to have a go!





Hip Hip Hooray… I love your ART!

Well, here we are with another Lockdown.  I am so excited because once again I am going to be receiving lots of your fabulous art, as well as hearing your news!

I will be setting Year Group Art activities, during your usual Art PPA session. They will be sent to your teachers who will explain them to you.  However, any questions and queries  you may have  please email me directly, as your class teacher will be dealing with lots of other things.

My email address is:

Just like the previous Lockdown, if the activity I have set doesn’t appeal to you then just do another piece of art  and send that to me. From collage to painting or printing to sculptures I just love seeing how creative you can be.  Also, if you do the artwork set and then you do another piece of art then please send that to me too! 

I will be keeping a list of the children that produce art for the Blog and there will be prizes and cerificates awarded to those who consistently send work to brighten up the Blog.  I will also have an artist of the week in each Year Group.

Lastly, if you have any ideas or suggestions for art activities that you think your Year Group may enjoy, please let me know….at the usual email address

That’s all for now =…..KEEP CREATING!
