Purple Class have been learning about Portraiture. We have learnt about three famous artists; Gary Hume, Richard Hamilton and Gerhard Richter. We discussed their work and we used it as an inspiration to make our own portraits. We carefully drew faces before mixing our own paint to make various shades of grey. Finally we painted our portraits in the style of Gerhard Richter's work. We had lots of fun!!
In Maths we have been using various manipulatives such as cubes, counters and numicon to solve repeated addition word problems. We made groups of objects and wrote the matching repeated addition calculations. We also used dienes to partition numbers into tens and ones. Have a look at the fun we had!
