Art-Friedensreich Hundertwasser

Along with Year 6, Year 5 are looking at Austrian artist  Friedensreich Hundertwasser. 

The children have been interested in his simplistic yet

colourful pieces of work, which focusses on a use of line. 

We have been recreational his take on trees using our own linear designs. Soon, we will be looking to take our own area and interests and blend them with Hundertwasser’s techniques. I’m sure you will agree how good they all look! 

We made a Solar System!

The Solar System is our topic in Science! We are enjoying learning about the planets and everything that space has to offer!


We decided to make the most of the last of the good weather for the year and make our own solar system! We decided on a scale to use and use the playing fields to try and map the distance each planet was from the sun, along with the moons that the planets have too!
