Art and DT

This half-term we are learning about pulley systems. We will explore how pulley systems work and make our own simple pulley systems, before designing and making a well, based on our topic 'Alchemy Island'. 

This half term, we are learning about the artist Hans Holbein. To start the topic, we did some research to find out more about Hans Holbein. 

This week, we have started to look at portraits and how to draw faces using the correct proportions. 

This week, we continued to practice drawing faces with accurate proportions. Next week, we will be using the work of Hans Holbein to inspire our own miniature portraits of Tudor monarchs.
