Arts On The Move – William Shakespeare Workshop

19/03/19

 

In year five they have been reading William Shakespeare’s Macbeth and ‘Arts On The Move’ came into to help them dig deeper into the story.

First we discussed and recorded down what we already knew about the murder of Banquo.   

Next, they were given individual roles to play. Some were characters from the story others were detectives trying to solve the crime.  

As the case developed they were given evidence and were asked to write down their thoughts. 

Eventually they got to interrogate some of the suspects and decide who was responsible for the murder of Banquo.

Georgia O’Keeffe – Modernism

 

Year five have been learning about Georgia O’Keeffe and her beautifully famous floral pieces.

To start off our project we learnt all about Georgia O’Keeffe’s artwork and what influenced her. 

 

Next we worked on some techniques that were used to create numerous Georgia O’Keeffe pieces. 

We then designed our own floral pieces influenced by Georgia O’Keeffe. 

Finally we selected our favourite design and created it.
