Our caterpillars have now moved to their new home in the chrysalis station.
We have been researching the artist Henri Matisse. We know that he liked to use bright colours and cut out shapes to create montages. One of his most famous pieces was called ‘The Snail.’ Luisa’s family very kindly donated some canvases to our class so we decided to recreate our own montage of a snail on canvas.
This week our star writers wrote fantastic acrostic poems about different mini beasts.
Please note that Mrs McIntosh will no longer be teaching our class due to staffing issues.
Over the past couple of weeks we have been working hard to improve our artistic and fine motor skills. As part of our learning in RME we have been learning about different Hindu traditions. We took inspiration from mehndi patterns to create our own hand designs.
We have also been learning how to quill. We found it quite tricky to begin with but now we are really quick at rolling the coils. We made different mini beasts using this technique.
