National Gallery Masterpiece - The Beacon

Year 4 were lucky enough to see the painting, Tobias and the Angel, displayed in The Beacon museum. The oil painting from the renowned 15th century master shows the archangel Raphael guiding Tobias and his dog through the countryside, to collect a debt owed to his blind father, Tobit. Tobias carries a gutted fish, while Raphael shows him a box containing its organs – ingredients to cure Tobit’s blindness. The children listened to a talk about the painting to learn all about it's history.

Reception - An Alphabet of Fruits! Colour Mixing and Observational Painting 

Following on from our World Book Day activities around the book 'Oliver's Fruit Salad', we have used our knowledge and the internet to research and find a different fruit for each of the letters of the alphabet! 

We have then observed closely what these fruits look like, using the internet on the ipads, and painted an observational picture of the fruit from our selected letter of the alphabet! 

We had to use our colour mixing skills that we have been developing over the year to paint them the correct colours. 

Take a look.... They look fantastic!
