Henry Moore WW2 Art


We started the week with some fascinating WW2 memorabilia which belonged to Miss Dunsmuir's Grandpa who was in the Merchant Navy, and she told us all about his service and experiences of the war. We have loved hearing stories about your families too  - please keep sending things in.

We will be writing evacuee diaries and Miss Pickard and I dug out our best acting skills to help portray "Outside (inside)" emotions. The children wrote some fabulous sentences using this technique and I can't wait to see them included in their diaries.

Our Art topic this half term is focused on Henry Moore's sketches of people sheltering in the Underground during the war. We looked at a short biography of his life and examples of his work, and created a collage report based on these then had a go at our own sketches, using hatching and cross-hatching. See the brilliant examples in the pictures below.
