Today we have looked at Romero Britto’s art in a mathematical way. Earlier in the week we noticed that he uses lots of shapes and patterns in his work. We discussed what a polygon is and reminded ourselves that there are regular and irregular polygons. We used the iPads to create different polygons on the geoboard app and then copied our shapes onto paper and coloured them in using bright and bold colours, just like Romero Britto! Did you know that polygon comes from the Greek words ‘poly’ meaning ‘many’ and ‘gon’ meaning ‘angles’?
We worked with Mrs Barker to create a class sign Romero Britto style and we’re looking forward to showing you this on Friday after whole school meeting.
