Recently, we have been making our own print blocks. To link with our History topic, we decided to use Ancient Egyptian symbols and patterns as inspiration for our Art. We hope you enjoy looking at our prints as much as we enjoyed making them! Oak Class.
Since coming back in September, Oak Class have enjoyed Forest School activities on our school field. The children particularly enjoyed:toasting marshmallows on the camp fire; building rafts; making catapults; painting pebbles and making teepees.
We took some photos on Friday, to show some of our learning, but we forgot to send the post … so here it is!
…we used online drawing tutorials to create some fabulous pieces!
Today, Oak Class have completed some fantastic artwork which we really wanted to share.
As part of our Art learning, we are making models of rainforest creatures. Today, the children enjoyed covering the wire armatures of their models with modroc- the sculptures are shaping up brilliantly!
This afternoon Oak Class enjoyed a composting workshop led by Recycle Devon. They learnt about decomposers and the composting process. The children loved putting science into practice looking for composting invertebrates.
This week Oak Class have been busy getting creative with designing and making silhouettes. The silhouettes are based on Darwins evolution picture with the children adding a comic twist to the picture.
This morning Oak Class ventured up to the Church to study the grave stones. They looked at how old each grave stone was and whether the weather had effected the condition of the granite. This afternoon we will be looking at our results and putting them onto a graph to see if the older the stone is he more weathered it is.
This morning the children loved getting very messy making Wildflower Seed bombs. We soaked the paper in water for 10minutes and then we blended the paper and water together. The children then made the mix into a ball and added seeds. We are now waiting for them to dry.
Everyone in School yesterday took part in making lots of Christmas craft! In Oak Class we painted Reindeer pots, which the children will be able to fill with a plant at home. They also made some very tasty melted snowman which were delicious. They also challenged their fine motor skills as they made many crafts with paper and felt.
