Hello Ash Class Families, welcome to Summer Term!

In Ash this term we will be diving in to meet all of the creatures that live under the sea as well as learning about rock pools, fossils and beaches. We will discover why it is important to look after our oceans and will consider why we recycle plastics. You will find our Summer Knowledge Organiser in the important information below for more details about our learning over the term.

Art Week -  January 2024

This week in Ash Class, we have enjoyed looking at the work of Andy Dice, a local artist and director of Cheltenham Paint Festival! We used Andy's work as inspiration for our own stencil paintings linked to our new topic and had the opportunity for some large scale art in our outdoor area. We used spray bottles to direct paint onto large pieces of cardboard, this was great fun but also a great opportunity to work on strengthening the muscles in our hands. 


In addition to this we explored the artwork of Japanese contemporary artist, Yayoi Kusama. We particularly loved her use of dots and stickers in art. We created our own installation by spray painting chairs white and sticking dots onto them. After this, the children created their own artwork inspired by Kusama, with a photo of themselves in the middle, they then chose different size and coloured dots to stick around the outside. These dots represent the different people in our lives. 


Finally, we combined the techniques of both Andy Dice and Yayoi Kusama to create a large piece of collaborative art which we can't wait to share with you at the Art Gallery on Monday. 

Remembrance Day 2023 

We enjoyed creating poppy inspired artwork and creating a display in our classroom for remembrance day. We made salt dough poppies, printed poppy prints with sponges, made poppy collages and even sketched our own poppies.

Here are some photos of our first few weeks in Ash Class this year!
