Join us on our learning adventures.

Practise, reflection, feedback and perseverance in 2F

Together we looked at 3 famous paintings of poppy fields.

We talked about how each painting was very different, yet each painting was beautiful. We looked at the different styles of paintings that Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet and Gustav Klimt had all used.

We then used water colour paints to create our own poppy field pictures. We learned how to do a colour wash and how to use the paint brush carefully, avoiding scrubbing the paper and thinking about the direction of our strokes. Everyone was very pleased with their work.

Then we watched a video called Austin’s Butterfly.

At the end of the week, having watched the video we shared our pictures with a partner and gave each other some specific feedback. We talked about the precise things we liked and gave some ideas about what we thought might improve the work. Some of us decided to start again, others worked on the same picture. Look at the difference we made.

Here are some more of our final masterpieces.

We all learned some new painting skills and we also learned how listening to specific feedback and practise helps us to improve our work. Maybe some of you could try doing another poppy field painting at home?
