This afternoon, we have been learning about habitats and how they are used by different creatures. Specifically, we have been deciding which different creatures live on a farm, in or near water and those that live in a hedge.
Is there a variety of animals living in each habitat?
In Art we have been creating 3D effects with viking brooches by using card, string and foil. We had to think carefully about how we would like our pattern to be and we then decorated our brooches with gems and sequins.
What have you been creating in Art that is linked to your Topic?
Last week, we made viking brooches using salt dough. We researched what they would have looked like and then made ours using similar designs. Today we were able to paint them using metallic acrylic paint to make them look even better!
What exciting things have you been learning about this week?
In Art, we are making our own viking shields. This is linked to our Topic and Literacy work. We started designing our shields this afternoon, looking at patterns and colours the Vikings would have used themselves. We are very excited to start making them next week!
What materials would you use on your viking shield?
In class 6, we have been doing our own paintings and drawings about the different environments the Viking Gods would have lived in. We thought of a snowy mountainous world, also a fiery and mossy forrest land.
Today in Art we were making our own Egyptian name plates. This is also called a cartouche. We used sand dough to make a flat stone and then carved our names and a message in hieroglyphics. It was lots of fun!
