Frida Kahlo Self Portraits: Art during Activities Week

Those who were at school for Activities Week had a jam-packed week including team circuits in the playground, inventing our own board games and some amazing art workshops at Yardley Hastings and Denton Village Primary School.

We learnt all about the life of Mexican Artist Frida Kahlo, and practised lots of painting skills including colour mixing, brushstroke techniques and producing different shades and hints of a colour. We then planned out our own self portraits, inspired by Frida Kahlo, using surreal collage techniques to show our different interests. 

We finished by viewing a gallery of all our artwork and giving each other constructive feedback on what we like and what we would do differently next time. 


Persuasive Writing

In English this term, we have focussed on persuasive writing with lots of creative activities to inspire us to write speeches and letters. We started reviewing a letter linked to our topic on Mexico, and worked in groups on a presentation called 'Save My Dog' in which we used persuasive writing techniques to convince Mrs. Rutter which dogs should receive a life-saving serum that was in short supply. 

Finally, to provide inspiration for our hot write, Mrs. Pritchard was joined by a couple of children to play out a terrible visit to a restaurant, with a rude waiter and rotten food. This encouraged us to write effective letters of complaint.
