A touch of Monet art

As part of our theme the children have been learning to paint in the style of Monet using the Tache technique which means touching the paper. On Thursday the children experimented with water colour paints and different brushes to create dabs and dashes. They explored using the brushes verically and horizontally to touch the paper and blend colours together.

Next week we will be continuing to use the Tache technique to create out own dragons which we will then use to help inspire our non- chronological writing on dragons in English.

The children have already decided what dragon they will be painting - we look forward to showing you our finished art work next week.

Helping at Home

Ways to help at home

  • Read every day
  • Practise your spellings and common exception words
  • As you read spot the sounds in words, can you find digraphs (two letters that make one sound) and trigraphs (three letters that make one sound)?
  • Count in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards
  • Learn your number bonds for all numbers to 20 (e.g number bonds to 7 are 1+6, 2+5, 3+4, etc.)
  • Practise telling the time to the hour, quarter past, half past, quarter to and as an extra challenge to 5 minute intervals (five past, ten past etc.)
  • Practise letter formation using the correct pencil grip and develop fine motor skills (peg pressing, picking pasta shells/rice with tweezers)
