Painting Unit


 Linking with our maths learning about shape, we have been looking at lines, shapes and colours in the work of artist Wassily Kandinsky.


We first thought about the shapes we wanted to use in our masterpieces. Thinking about the use of space too, we drew around shapes which were overlapped or drawn in isolation.


Next, we added lines. Again, thinking about space, we drew different lines- long, short, straight, curved, thick and thin.

We are amazing artists

Adding colour

Our final masterpieces


Over the first few lessons we have been learning about...

1. The differences between London in 1666 and today.

2. How the fire started and how it spread.

3. How they tried to put out the fire.

We are marvellous mathematicians

Counting sides on 2D shapes

We worked together to agree our class expectations


We started the year having 'get to know you' circle time chats in small groups to find out about each other.
