'Learning together for a better tomorrow'


Year 5 Collaborative Art Project based on the book โ€˜The Dotโ€™ by Peter Reynolds.

The dot is a picture book written and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds. The story focuses around a little girl called Vashti who discovers her artistic talent. Vashti has very little self confidence in her artistic ability and becomes frustrated that she cannot draw anything. Her teacher helps her discover that she has a real flair in Art by encouraging her to start by drawing a dot.

When Vashti becomes angry and frustrated, her teacher says “Just make a mark and see where it takes you!” So with her teacher’s encouragement she begins with a small dot. The next day the teacher asks Vashti sign it and she has it framed on her wall. Vashti is suddenly dissatisfied with her dot and so she tries different approaches to explore creating Art using just a dot. Suddenly, Vashti has created a whole Art show.


In Year 5S we were really inspired by Vashti’s story and decided to create out own artwork based on the dot. We hope you enjoy our Art ๐Ÿ˜Š.



Egyptian Sunset Art ๐ŸŒ…

This term we will be learning about the Ancient Egyptians as our World Around Us topic. In Art we have been creating Egyptian Sunset paintings using watercolour paints. We began by painting a wash of colour fading into reds, oranges and yellows to represent the sunset, then we started to draw our pyramids, camels and palm tree silhouettes.  Once that had dried, we began to paint our silhouettes black. We hope you enjoy looking at our final piece.

Tessellation Art

In Numeracy we have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes. We have also been investigating shapes that tessellate. Whilst investigating these shapes, we decided to turn our repetitive patterns into a lovely piece of Art.
