The Moving Body

We have finally kicked off for a new term at Pelham Primary School with a flourishing class.

We now have 2 full groups of Of Key Stage 1 led by Louise Pasquill and Key stage 2 children led by Veena Scialo. We began the term in glorious sunshine by working outside with some activities tested during our summer holiday courses Fleeting Images

After warming up the children worked on a large roll of paper to experiment with mark making using chalk and charcoal.

They enjoyed getting messy

We used tissue to rub into our work to keep layering the marks whilst adding shading and texture.dsc_0025 dsc_0027 dsc_0030 dsc_0031

Hand and footprints added interesting effects.

The children then drew while the adults created poses for them to copy – a form of life drawing.dsc_0047 dsc_0052 dsc_0054 dsc_0057 dsc_0077 We then added colour to our figuresdsc_0079

We were very absorbed in what we were doing.dsc_0080 dsc_0082 dsc_0083 dsc_0084 dsc_0085 dsc_0087 dsc_0089 dsc_0090 dsc_0091 dsc_0092 dsc_0096 dsc_0097 dsc_0098 dsc_0099

The following week we experimented with pipe cleaners to model different poses.img_2379 img_2380 img_2382

We then drew around the pipe cleaner figures as they moved across the page – a sequence of movements was created.img_2383 img_2388

We added props to our drawingsimg_2390 img_2393 img_2398 img_2401 img_2405

Short stories began to emerge, which we will develop next week.
