A suncatcher is a decorative piece that you hang in a sunny window. When the sunlight shines through it, the colours and patterns create beautiful, colourful reflections all around the room. Think of it like a mini stained-glass window!

This week, Year 5-6 students created beautiful suncatchers using various patterns. To make them even more beautiful, we braided colourful wool and hung the suncatchers from it.

This week, FS1-2 kids, we made a beautiful owl.

We read a story about owls and looked at pictures of them to understand their features.

This week, we created art in the style of Joan Miró. We learned about the important elements of his work and focused on using bright colors, abstract forms, and playful, symbolic imagery. Miró, a Spanish painter, sculptor, and ceramicist, is often associated with the Surrealist movement. His distinctive style involves several key elements and techniques:

Abstract Forms: Miró often used abstract, organic shapes that could evoke both natural and fantastical elements. His shapes are usually bold and whimsical.

Bright Colours: He employed a vibrant colour palette with primary colours (red, blue, yellow) often standing out, creating a sense of joy and spontaneity in his work.

Simplified Figures: His figures are often simplified and stylized, resembling childlike drawings or primitive art. These figures can represent people, animals, or imaginary creatures.

Lines and Dots: Thin, black lines and dots are frequently used to connect various elements in his compositions, creating a sense of movement and connection.

Symbolism: Miró’s work is rich in symbolic meaning. He often incorporated stars, moons, eyes, and other recurring symbols that held personal significance or were intended to evoke certain emotions or thoughts in the viewer.
