During our art lessons we have been exploring art and nature. This week we were learning the myths about Dream Catchers before creating our own.
First the children weaved the wool through the holes in their paper plate and then threaded the beads on. We found this very fiddly and challenging but we persevered. Finally we threaded leaves onto our Dream Catcher and glued on a couple of feathers.
The children were very proud of their Dream Catchers and looking at the photos you can see why. Well done Year One.
During our art lessons, Year 2 have been exploring food. We have done observational drawings and then we made food out of modelling clay before painting it.
This was the first stage, we manipulated the clay with our hands and shaped it into our favourite food.
After that we painted our food, using acrylic paint.
The children thoroughly enjoyed doing this art project and the results are amazing.
Year 3 have been learning about the Stone Age in their Topic and art lessons. For this art lesson we learnt how fossils are formed. The children then drew an animal fossil, selecting the correct pencil for fine detail.
After that, the children then created their animal fossils using clay. The children concentrated so well throughout the lesson and as you can see the results are quite stunning!
The children in Pufferfish class have been learning about art in nature. First they looked at the leaves and then selected the right ones to make their leaf animals
Cohen made a Leaf Turtle by carefully cutting the leaves and then arranging them to make sure they fitted before glueing them and adding eyes.
Alex and Mrs Cass worked together to create a Leaf Dinosaur.
A Leaf Rabbit A Leaf Horse.
