Inspired by the paintings of Toulouse Lautrec, Year 7 have been making facial features from paper mache. The paper mache was moulded into individual features of the face eg the eyes, lips etc in the style used by Lautrec in his paintings.
The models were painted and varnished and the features grouped together on chicken wire for display.
The final products have been put on display outside on the wall of Eaton Grange.
For DT Year 6 have been making upcycled clocks. All the materials for their design (apart from the clock mechanism) had to be sourced from previously used items. Year 6 showed amazing creativity and innovation in the design and production of their clocks – there was a great variety of items used such as plates, buckets and wheel trims.
The class learnt some new skills such as chiseling – some had to use a mallet and chisel to carve out space for the clock mechanism.
Year 4 have been looking at using textures in art and have created some interesting models from plaster. First a clay caste was constructed – many different objects, such as forks, hessian, pencils, lids, were pressed into the clay to create textures. The casts were filled with plaster of paris. Once the plaster had solidified the clay caste was removed.
