"How does Art connect us to our Natural world?"

This term our enquiry question is "How does Art connect us to our Natural World?" Our focus is Art and Music. The children will learn to look for lines and pattern in natural objects and replicate these using lines in their drawing and artwork. They will create sea scapes, exploring the movement of lines and experimenting with different materials. The children will learn to use a range of lines, diagonal, broken, crosshatch, vertical, thick and thin to create observational drawings of natural objects. The will learn how to make secondary colours from the praimary colours and use this knowledge to paint and print. In music we will be using our voices to sing and perform and learn how to play the xylophone.
