As part of their Take One Picture work, on the George Bellows painting ‘Men of the Docks’, the children in Year 5 have been focussing on the figures of the men who are depicted on the docks. They have made tableaux of the figures and explored what they think their poses might tell us about the men; what they are doing, thinking, feeling. The children then chose one of the men to recreate their pose using the medium of Moc Roc. Previously they had made their pipe cleaner frames and this week they started to build up layers of Mod Roc. Over the next two lessons they will complete their Mod Roc and paint them, choosing a colour palette that will fit with the painting.
