With trips out still restricted by the coronavirus, we decided to make use of the local sculpture trail and have a project on sculpture.
We started the week by looking at some of the work of Antony Gormley. The children have seen the Angel of the North, Untitled (for Francis) at the Tate, and Peterborough has it's own series of Gormley statues.
The children also made their own clay models, following an Antony Gormley Twinkl activity sheet.
We went to the local sculpture park and the children had to draw pictures of the sculptures and write what they did or didn't like about them
We also looked at a wider variety of sculpture and statues, from Michelangelo to the Fourth Plinth,and gave the task of designing their own statues if materials and money were not an issue. Solomon's was 'The Great Evil', while Monica's was 'Motherhood'.
Next week's project: Shooting a Video!
