Designing Canopic Jars

Last term, the Bluebirds in year 3 learned all about Ancient Egypt in Topic. This week in Art, we are remembering our Topic lessons in art.

We are designing canopic jars to then make our design out of clay. Canopic jars were used by ancient Egyptians to hold mummified remains. During the mummification process, all of a person’s major organs were removed and placed in canopic jars.

Here are some of our designs:

Calendars for 2021

Today, the Bluebirds in Year 3 had a brilliant (and slightly messy time) time printing their 2021 calendars!

We made prints for the four seasons from polystyrene cards and printed them in black paint.

Each section was a different colour background and a different print for the four seasons.

We put a black boarder around each season to really make it stand out. They look fantastic year 3, well done!

Andy Warhol Pop Art effects

During Computing with Mr Baddhan today, Bluebirds learned about Pop Art and the artist Andy Warhol. They learned about his work and how he made things look interesting using some of his artistic work. We looked at the type of effects he used to make everyday things look interesting and coourful.

Bluebirds used a Pop Art website to add Andy Warhol effects to their own photos. Have a look at the wonderful work they produced to make their photos look interesting.

Cave paintings

In art this afternoon, the Bluebirds in Year 3 were sketching their own cave drawing in the style of a Stone Age cave painting. We used the illustrations in the back of our class reader from last term, Stone Age Boy for reference and inspiration.

Our LO was design our own cave painting, our sketches will be used when we are painting in our next lesson.

Daisy’s home learning work!

Last week the Bluebirds were learning at home, Mrs Moore was so pleased with the work that was given in on Monday and the effort everyone put into their work. Many gold and silver cards were given out to the children who did some excellent work.

One of the home learning tasks was to draw or paint a picture that resembled a cave painting. Daisy C gave in her paintings on Monday and it was clear how hard she had worked on them. Mrs Moore was extremely impressed and Daisy’s paintings will be displayed on our Stone Age display!

Well done Daisy C!
