Year 5 – Norman Cornish

Our Blog is updated each week and can be found at: School Blog.

The children in Y5 have been learning about the artist Norman Cornish, who grew up in the coal-mining community of Spennymoor (County Durham). In English, the children wrote biographies about his life as a child and his professional career. In Art, they studied his work and used green screening to take photographs of scenes similar to those he is famous for drawing. As whippets and greyhounds feature in many of Cornish’s pieces, Miss Alderson’s whippet came into school for a modelling shoot and featured in the children’s photographs. The children are now using the photographs they took to create their own pieces, using oil pastels, in the style of Norman Cornish!
