Comic Strips

This month fifth class have been studying different myths and legends. We learned about Diarmuid and Gráinne and illustrated the story on a comic strip.

Clay Art

In art, we had great fun creating our own mythical creatures. First we planned them on paper but lots of them turned out totally differently. We used cocktail sticks to help keep the fiddly bits from falling off and they definitely helped. Some of us used small beads for eyes. When the clay dried, we painted them and when that was dry, we glazed them with PVA glue, so they would look nicer and last longer. They turned out really well:

 

Tall Tales

In creative writing we created some Tall Tales, which are stories that are told as if they were true but contain an exaggerated and unbelievable storyline. Sometimes there is an element of truth in the stories and sometimes they are completely make-believe. We included lots of superlatives which we had been learning about in one of our grammar workshops. Creating the Tall Tales was fun. It was a group activity and we had to make sure everyone had their say and contributed to the storyline. Have fun reading our tall tales.

Here we are working in our groups!

We’ve also learned some poems and you can hear us recite them by clicking on the link below…

Perspective Art

Also in art, we’ve been studying one point perspective. We created a streetscape and painted it using watercolours. Notice where the vanishing point is in the pictures and how things appear smaller as they disappear into the distance. This was very technical work, with pupils following very specific instructions.
