Year 4’s Solar System Art

In Year 4, we looked at the ‘Solar System’ and the different features of each individual planet.
Focusing on colour, texture and special  features of each planet we created our own planets using a range of materials and techniques.
We included 9 planets in our Solar System and learnt a rhyme to help us to remember the order of the planets:

MY – Mercury
VERY – Venus
ENERGETIC – Earth
MOTHER – Mars
JUMPED – Jupiter
STRAIGHT – Saturn
UP – Uranus
NEAR – Neptune
PLUTO – Pluto

To create our planets we used collage, water colour paint, coloured pencil and oil pastels.
We splattered white paint onto black card to create our background of ‘SPACE’ and cut out or planets and placed them in order to make our own wonderful  ‘Solar Systems’.
