In art we learned about the art of display. We learned about the use of plinths to display statues such as in the lions in Trafalgar Square in London. We studied the work of Antony Gormley through One & Other on a project called the Fourth Plinth where anyone could fill an empty plinth in Trafalgar Square for one hour with anything they wanted to. We thought about what we would do with an hour on the plinth!
We learned about the sculptor Thomas J. Price and his modern sculptures. We used air dough to create our own miniature sculptures.
We created our own wire sculptures of Roman people linking to our history topic.
We researched, designed and sculpted nests of South American birds linking to our geography topic.
