Jasper Johns - Painter exercise.

Jasper Johns (born May 15, 1930) is an American painter, sculptor and printmaker whose work is associated with abstract expressionism and pop art. He is well known for his depictions of the American flag and other US-related topics. Johns' works regularly sell for millions of dollars at sale and auction, including a reported $110 million sale in 2010. At multiple times works by Johns have held the title of most paid for a work by a living artist.

He is also known for his work using numbers. Younger children could be inspired by choosing just one number to colour, older children could layer up more than one number – maybe their date of birth, or family birthdays – to get a more complex result.
The website link below has a good explanation of what younger children could do. You do not need a number template, you can just draw out a big number – maybe their age?

https://nurturestore.co.uk/jasper-johns-numbers-steam-activity-kids

Older children could try something more like these images. They would work best in acrylic paint, oil pastel or crayon, but really any colour would still look striking.

Please see Mrs Dearloves Number art below.

Outdoor Learning

At Repton Manor we care for the environment and the world around us, teaching the children to care for and respect nature through outdoor learning. We are developing our own wildlife area and outdoor classroom on our school grounds but are lucky enough to have use of the community centre grounds also, with mature trees and open spaces.

Research has shown that spending prolonged periods of time immersed in natural surroundings helps children in all sorts of ways, from improved mental wellbeing to physical fitness and learning new skills.
Outdoor learning challenges children to learn using communication, team building and independence, whilst equipping them with important life skills, such as resilience, building self-esteem and learning to assess risk. Nature is the perfect backdrop for creativity, imagination and exploration.


Our children are able to explore nature, build dens, climb trees, sit around a camp fire, all the time learning without even realising that is what they are doing. We are outside all year round, in all weathers and its great!

Mr Jobber has selected some websites that will extremely useful for home learning.
