It has been a week of finishing of some of our topics. In Geography, we have been studying the human and physical features of South America, in particular, Brazil and comparing these with the UK. South America is such a rich and diverse continent, it has definitely capture our interest and we are glad to be carrying our studies on, after half term, when we learn all about the Inca’s, an ancient South American Civilisation.
In Art, we have learnt all about another South American artist, Breatiz Milhaze – we have studied her art work and created our own pieces based on her work. The children started by creating a collage background, using a range of colours and materials, layered on top of each other, whilst exploring different angles. They then have created their own paint prints in order to add an extra dimension to their work.
