About 15 hours up in the air the rocket was gliding up to the moon as we were flying up we saw a blue and green round circle Earth then we had landed on the moon. We jumped up onto the moon, we had just turned round and suddenly we saw aliens. They just stood still and were glaring at us. Pink and purple, large and blobby the Umps were taken by surprise because they had never seen humans before. Before you knew it the Umps were starting to attack us and then the aliens started to talk “Zummelkmy” (alien language) and we did not know what they were saying.we will under stand them in a mint .

Andy Warhol Alien Prints

AW 1 AW 2 AW 3 AW 4 AW 5 AW 6

These are some of the Andy Warhol alien prints we have been making in class 5. First we designed the alien and then drew it onto tracing paper. After that we copied it onto some foam before printing it onto black paper using just white paint. We used rollers to put pressure on the back of the foam to push down to get the colour onto the paper. We went on to paint different parts of the foam to create layers of colour and repeat the rolling. We really like the finished pieces and would love to hear what you think of them.
