Our new topic this term is ‘Use of everyday materials’ and over the next few weeks we are going to be learning about lots of different materials and how things are made.
This week we are going to identify and compare the suitability of a variety of everyday materials, including wood, metal, plastic, glass, brick, rock, paper and cardboard for particular uses by identifying the uses of different materials.
This term we are going to be studying The Victorians and making comparisons between the Victorian era and modern day (Including leisure and how the seaside holidays have changed).
For your first lesson I would like you to focus on present day and research your nearest or your favourite seaside resort/ location.
You could use a range of sources including the internet, books and maps.
The research could be presented as a tourist information guide or video, resort leaflet / poster or an internet blog as a travel reporter reviewing the resort!
This term we are looking at an artist called Keith Haring.
He is well known for using bold, bright colours with thick outlines and a cartoon style.
Watch the slide show below to find out information about Keith Haring and see some examples of his work.
Now watch the video clip below which shows you how to draw your own character in the style of Keith Haring. You start by drawing a stick man (try to add elbow, wrist, ankle and knee joints) and then going around the shape using a black felt tip or pencil crayon.
Have a go yourself and enjoy!
Feel free to e mail any of your drawings.
I have given you all some tasks to complete on Purple mash - you could also go onto 2email and send me an email!
