    Phoenix Art Space (Shreeja)

    On Monday 27th Janury, Year 3 went to the Phoenix Art Space to see a art exhibition.  On my way to the Art Space, I was feeling a bit grumpy because there were too many dog poos .  We looked at some paintings.  I saw little light blobs with wires all tangled together and nobody else saw it. 

    My favirite panting was a spotty one.  The person who made it loved pizza! The painting was based on pizza. It made me think of some portals.  After that we walked into a differnt room and we made some art. 

    My favrourite part of the making activity was using the oil pastells on a peice of caloco.  At the end of the day, I  was feeling tired.

    On Monday 27th of January we walked to the Phoenix Art Space.  I was partnered with Ursula.  When we were walking down from school I felt happy and very exited.laugh

    First we went to the gallery.  We looked at the spotty painting that reprusented a party with pizza! We saw a 3D painting too. One dot in the dotty painting looked very bright like the sun.

    My favourite painting was the blue,3D painting.  I liked it because the blue was a bit smudged and it made it look really good.  The painting made me think of a gallixy because it had two types of blue,a light and a dark.heart 

    Then we went into a room to make some art with a type of fabric and we made shapes on the fabric.

  • Phoenix art space (Hewad)

    On Monday 27th January we all went to the Phoenix Art Space. It was a very large and exiting place and the art was very good. I was nervous but very exited when I was walking down the hill from school. While we were there, a woman called Chloe showed us some pictures. There were tiny lines on every single painting and that was intresting. My favourite painting was the dots. They were really good. It made me think that I'd like to keep it in my room. When we stopped looking at the paintings, we made our own. At school we named them in French. I'd like to do the same things again, but spend hours on making paintings.

    On Monday 27th Jaunuary, Year 3 walked down to the Phoenix Art Space. We saw paintings in the gallary. I was feeling  really excited and nervous.  I liked the rainbow painting. It was really cool beacause it had lots of diffrent colours. I saw lots of funny paintings too. I noticed  that one painting had  4 little dots, and it had  3 dots on the left.   It made me think that it was real. Then we created our own art made of fabric, and we painted it. My  favourite part was that we cut and stuck and made our own art. Happily went back to school.

After that we created our own pieces of art (it was really fun) . Jenny, the artist, let me go out of the room with my mum to outline my work with black and red marker. Me and my mum outlined my work with the black and red markers. Then we went back to our lovely school for our packed lunch ( my mum made me a wrap and gave me a kit-kat ) . Finally we went back to our lessons for the rest of the day.

  • Piper by Pa Assan (carltonhill Admin)

    It was a calm morning. The fiery sun was beaming down, and the flowing waves were rushing over the sand and pebbles. A flock of sand-pipers chirped happily as they searched among the pebbles for food.

    A young hungry chick watched its mum searching for food. Expecting to be fed, he opened his small grey beak, but he got nothing. Why? The time had come. His mum now expected him to go and look for his own food, so she hopped-off down the beach. Bravely, he followed her.

    Dashing through the flock of sand pipers, he excitedly jabbed his beak into the water, in search of food. Bubbles popped and tickled as he tried to copy his mum. The fluffy chick was intrigued.

    Suddenly, waves splashed and sploshed over him, leaving the small bird soaking and dazed. He retreated to the safety of his nest, and stubbornly refused to leave.

    Unexpectedly, the sand moved under him as a hermit crab scuttled along the beach.The little sand piper gazed over the orangey red shelled creature as it searched for food and burried itself.

    A fierce wave aproached.

    The soon to be drenched piper burried himself in sand under the salty water, copying the hermit crab.

    Underwater, he slowly and gentely opened his eyes, and discovered all the shelled sea food floating around the salty water.

    As soon as the tide went out, he got up and swiftly darted through the flock of pipers collecting piles of shelled food. The piper felt proud with his new found confidence as the sun made it's way down beyond the horizon.

    It was a calm evening. Everything looked the same, but somehow everything had changed.
