Art- Exploring Van Gogh

 

In art we are enjoying learning about Vincent van Gogh.  This week we experimented with recreating the most important parts of his famous painting Starry Night, using wax crayon, oil pastel and paint.  We then decided which looked most effective and will be using it to create our own versions of Starry Night over the next few weeks...with a Harry Potter twist! Watch this space...

Scratch Junior

 

In Computing, Bramble Class have begun exploring using Scratch Jnr and creating algorithms in order to program the cat. Next half term, the children will be creating their own moving stories using Scratch Jnr.

 

If you want to practise using Scratch Jnr, it is free to download via iTunes.
