Summer Term 1

This half term we will be exploring the enquiry question: Do all artists paint?


Admirals will be looking critically at pieces of art and learning new skills in order to experiment, invent and create their own works of art.  We will begin with shadow drawing. We will look at work by Vincent Bal who is a “shadowologist” and filmmaker from Belgium. Admirals will then use their drawing skills to create their own shadow drawing of a plant or leaf. They will then look at sculpture and create a piece of art for the Climate Unity Project 2022 which will be displayed at Southampton City Art Gallery.


We have also started our new English unit based on the book ‘The Gigantic Turnip’. We have become familiar with the story in lots of different ways. We have explored different vegetables from the story using our senses to describe them, acted out the story using stick puppets and have written a short retelling of the book.
