This term, we have tried our hands at exploring and creating our own Roman mosaic inspired prints. We began, by designing our own patterns using colouring pencils before moving on to creating digital representations. Then we moved on to practising our printing techniques and are very soon going to be moving on to making our own final pieces, so watch this space!
Later in the term, Class 3 most certainly lived up to the task of becoming daring designers as they endeavoured to try their hands at creating their very own Stone Age jewellery. First they had to carry out a little research and designing, next they put their skills to the test each coming up with their own unique designs. This not only linked beautifully to our history learning of the Stone Age to Iron Age but also to our Rocks and Fossils topic in Science.
This term, we will be trying our hands at recreating our very own cave paintings inspired by the Stone Age. We will begin by looking at existing ones discovered and considering what tools and materials would have been used to create these. Then we will move on to making our own!
Class 3, have continued to put their artistic and design skills to the test over the course of the term as they have also had some cross-curricular opportunities to showcase their talents. Most notably, the dragonflies they created in English to accompany some wonderful poems they had written and at the end of the year too as they made some calendars to take home and welcome in the new year.
