Starry Night

Last week as part of our topic, we learnt about the infamous Vincent Van Gogh. We took a look at and compared his earlier and later art, discussing how his style and use of colour changed. Following this, we took a closer look at his famous Starry Night painting. Together we identified the different shades he used and shared our ideas about the style of his painting.

We also used our some of the vocabulary we’d been working on in English to describe what we saw. Here are a couple of phrases we came up with:

"The moon glows in the night sky which is like ripples in the ocean."

"The swirling sky is wrapping itself around the gloomy mountains."

Finally, we then created our own versions of Van Gogh’s Starry Night. Take a look below at some of our fantastic work!
