Sketching self-portraits Year 4

In Year 4 we have been exploring how to complete a self-portrait. We spent time looking at our faces closely in the mirror, remembering to keep look even when we were sketching.

We completed a few self-portraits, some sketched and some in colour. We then chose our favourite self-portrait so please take a look at them below:

We still have lots more work to do on self-portraits and we will look at different styles of self-portraits. This week we will start to look at some of Picasso’s work and see what inspiration we can get from his art.

Year 4 recreate hand x-rays

 

Year 4 have been learning about the human skeleton. They have explored the different bones, the names and function of bones, and the types of joints in our skeleton.

We have begun to look at the work of Marie Curie and how she developed the x-ray. We decided to recreate an x-ray of our hand, working hard to include all the bones and we discovered there are a lot of bones in our hands!

Here are our x-rays, don’t you think we’ve included a lot of the bones that our hands have!
