Heald Place Primary School

Year 5

Year 5 have been very busy with their Art linking to the Space and Planets topic!
We have looked at work by an artist called Peter Thorpe who paints vibrant pictures of rockets
Have a look at some of the detail from our chalk compositions of planets we created! They are also
on display in school. We have also used marbling, printing, painting and clay skills in this project. We
challenged one another with this question , “ How can you make a rocket pencil pot by applying the
clay skills you know?” We really enjoyed the challenge and noticed how all the pencil pots looked
different! We learnt the new skill of ‘scratching and blobbing’ so the clay to make pieces stick
together. We are currently making Rocket Cushions, take a look at our progress so far!
