Inspirational Journals

We have Inspirational Journals in Crooklets class as a different way of us having home learning.  Every week we add an entry to our journals on something that inspires or interests us.  This can be linked to things we do at home, with our families, at school or just something about which we want to find out more.


Have a look at a selection from our journals.

Sketching Kilkhampton

As part of our topic, 'Great Artists,' we sketched the views we could see from our village.  We learnt sketching techniques and then went to sketch where we could get views of the church and down to the sea.  We will be using the sketches to create our own landscapes inspired by Vincent Van Gogh

Hot and Cold pictures

In Crooklets class we have been learning about great artists and artworks.  We have been learning about related colours and used our knowledge to complete these 'hot and cold' designs using oil pastels.

Inspirational Journals

We have been keeping inspirational journals in Crooklets class as a different way of managing our home learning.  Each week we choose what we want to research or to tell our teacher.  We plan to add to the entries on this page so you can see some of our home learning.

Saxon Shields
Crooklets class are learning about the Anglo-Saxons this term.  They have learnt from where the Saxons, Jutes and Angles originated and have researched the differences between Anglo-Saxon and modern living.  The children also looked at Anglo-Saxon shields and then used them as inspiration to design their own shields.
