We are Astronauts!

In Art for the last two weeks, Y5 have been creating a masterpiece that is from the viewpoint of an astronaut. They first created the background using a range of dark colours. Then they splattered white paint on the page in order to create a starry effect. The next day they made planets and used sponges, paintbrushes and an array of paints to create different coloured planets from our solar system. Next was the tricky part, designing the astronaut! First, they cut around a picture of their own face and decided which bit they would like in their astronaut helmet. Then they drew and add chalk to the space suit and then carefully arranged it on their background. We then put a black chalk outline around all of our planets on the page so they stand out. The finished product looks amazing. You can see them all on our new space display. Well done Class 5!
