Creative Stone Age Homework
Take a look at our creative home learning - making Stone Age cave paintings!
As part of our work on the Stone Age, we made some stunning silhouettes of Stonehenge. We began by making a background wash to create a sunset effect. Next, we used torn pieces of black sugar paper to create our own versions of Stonehenge. We tore the paper to give a rough edge - more like stone. Take a look at the fantastic final products!
We have recently completed some displays in the corridor outside our classroom. Take a look!
Creative Homework for Term 1
One of the books we have studied is 'Mouse, Bird, Snake, Wolf'. In this book, the children made a wolf from things they found in the forest. Mr Trodd set the challenge of making a model or picture of an animal that uses objects from nature. We also read the book 'Belonging' where the whole story is told through the view from one window. Mr Trodd challenged the class to create a view through one the windows at home.
There were some fantastic pieces of work completed as you can see from these photos! Well done everyone! Thank you to all the family members who helped at home.
Inspired by our book in English ('Belonging' by Jeannie Baker), we made some art work using pastels and collage using real bits of trees collected from the playground to create views from our school windows. Can you spot where they have been used? It was a lot of fun!
