All the groups have done a wonderful job and we hope to be able to exhibit their work at school this term so that everybody can learn a little more about the art that we have enjoyed and learnt last term.

As you could see on this Blog last January, Primary 5 pupils have been doing a mini research project on different artists during the second term. They chose three artists they would like to research: Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, Diego Velázquez, Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso and Leonardo Da Vinci. Based on their choices, they got into groups to work.

Using the tablets, they entered the 5th Primary Arts Site, where, using videos and texts in both Spanish and English, they searched for information to answer their questions.

The result had to be put on a poster board, which had to contain the answers to the questions and at least one of the works of the artist they were working with. They gave the presentation in English to the whole class.

What struck them was that each one self-evaluated their work, results, effort and learning. In addition, they evaluated their peers in their presentation based on criteria that they knew from the beginning of the project.

But one of the things that the students have learnt the most in the project is to work and organise a team to obtain the expected results, because working in a team is much more difficult than working alone. And of course, to know and recognise works of Art, styles of painting, and that most of the artists' lives were full of strong emotions that they captured in their works.
