This term with years 5 and 6 we started making Ancient Greek Helmets, using balloons and string to measure the size of our heads. We then blew up the balloons to that size and paper mached them with newspaper and watered down pva glue.
In our final lesson with years 1 and 2 we painted these beautiful cityscapes of London, counting all the bridges, buildings and attractions. Using watercolour paints is a really great way of mixing colours and showing all the change in light in the sky and across the city.
Developing our skills with clay, we each looked really closely at parts of a photograph of a bear using different tools to make markings and textures. Finally putting them all together to look at the bear as a whole like a big mosaic puzzle.
We had great fun making kaleidoscopes to explore how primary colours mix to create secondary colours. We built them with plastic cups, tin foil and different coloured cellophane, you can also shake them to make the colours appear differently!
