Year 1 getting crafty

Year 1 have been working with Mrs Bird doing some metallic painting of plaster moulded leaves which they will make into Christmas decorations. Meanwhile,  Noah is shown here in a colour-mixing lesson, using a paint technique called “impasto”  which involves applying thick layers of paint in the style of Vincent van Gogh.  The sunflower pictures will be displayed in the Prep  corridor.

Who is busy with their HOHS Christmas card design?

A reminder that we are looking for a colourful design to grace the HOHS Christmas cards this year –  and pupils need to get their entries in by next Wednesday, 15th November.  The design can be in crayon, pencil, paint or any other media,  and feature anything Christmas-related, but it must be:

  • square (the printed cards will be square not rectangular)
  • on white paper

The winner will have their design printed on our own HOHS Christmas card and receive ten of the cards and envelopes for their own family.

It’s all about me in Nursery!

Our Nursery children’s current topic is About Me and this week they have been learning all about their bodies and what’s inside them. Janet and Allan Ahlberg’s Funnybones is always a great favourite and the children’s artwork based on the classic story was just going up on the wall when the roving camera popped in this morning!

The children were also enjoying some free play, drawing and working one-to-one with their teachers on number work.

A smack of Jellyfish by Year 5

 

Year 5 pupils created this colourful ‘smack’ of jellyfish in art last term.

  • Did you know that jellyfish…

… can be bigger than a human, while others are as small as a pinhead?
… are eaten by people in some countries?
… have been on Earth for millions of years, even before dinosaurs?
… have no brain but some kinds have eyes?
… are mainly made up of water and protein?
… and that a group of jellyfish is called a ‘smack’?

GCSE art

Miss Coughlan took these pictures while our Year 11 GCSE art pupils were absorbed in their work recently. The standard of art at HOHS is always high and we wish the girls every success in the practical art exams they have just completed.
