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?

Making Viking Instruments

This afternoon we were making different instruments using materials such as string, elastic, plastic, rice and pasta shells to create different sounds. We then had tot think about how our instrument made its sound, the pitch, tone and volume.

What materials would you use to make an instrument?

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!
