Welcome to Year 5
Class Teacher: Mr Jack Johansen
Over the next few weeks, our learning enquiry will be:
“How can I use artistic techniques to create a self-portrait?’
Through the learning question, the children will develop an understanding of chiaroscuro (dark and light) artists. Through this, they will develop their skills in creating shade, line, tone and shape. We will be looking at how the face is proportioned at a frontal view and also a ¾ view, where the face is at an angle. We will be using charcoal and chalk as a media for our final piece, which will be a self-portrait at a ¾ angle.
Our English writing will go alongside our learning enquiry. We will be writing an instructional text.
Over the next few weeks, in Mathematics, our focus will be on Fractions and Decimals.
