KS1 have been super artists this term. We've been looking at swirls using a piece called "Waves" by Beth Krommes as inspiration. They have created some beautiful swirls using different materials and paint types.
Today, they created some beautiful swirls after listening to music and letting the music inspire their drawing. We listened to music with a fast tempo, slow tempo and different dynamics/rhythms. It was fun to hear different types of music and everyone enjoyed drawing what they felt.
We're looking forward to starting our wave masterpieces next week!
KS2 really enjoyed working systematically in Maths and really focused on how their recording can help them do this! Children wanted to carry on through playtime and in the afternoon! Great work everyone.
