P4-7 headed up to the woods in the sunshine today to gather natural materials to create symmetrical pictures. We had the challenge of finding matching items of similar size and and shape such as leaves, twigs, grasses and pine cones etc.
Back at school, we created a line of symmetry on a large sheet of paper. The children had to work in pairs using their soft skills of cooperation, idea sharing and negotiation to agree their layout theme.
They carefully selected and placed natural materials to produce symmetrical pictures with similar parts facing each other as a mirror image.
The children have been very creative in combining art with maths today. Have a look at their lovely symmetrical pictures.
