Take One Artist

This week is the start of our Take One Artist event and the artist being studied is Andy Warhol.

We looked at Warhol’s pictures of Marilyn Monroe(4 pictures with different backgrounds) and decided to create our own digital artwork in this style. The only difference is we chose a building( our topic for the year is architecture) in Europe ( we’re studying Europe in Geography).

We really enjoyed creating our artwork on the computer. Look out for them outside our classroom next week.


In Sparrowhawks we are learning how to code. We are really enjoying learning how to do this and always work hard to move on to the next level. Sometimes what we have to do takes a lot of working out but we do persevere in order to achieve our best.

How the Pyramids Were Built

Our overarching topic this year is architecture and as part of this we are looking at Egypt’s pyramids and how they were built. Currently we are looking at pyramids and finding out as much information as possible before we move on to creating our own pyramids. We are using the internet to find out  information, then it’s books, pictures and models and then……… we make!
