Creating 3D effects

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.

Designing Viking Shields


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?

This afternoon, we planted mustard seeds in trays. We did this to make ‘grass’ for when we build our own mini stonehenges ready for our Stone Age animations.

This afternoon we made stewed pears! This is something that they would have eaten during the stone age. We had to peel the pears, chop them up and then add water. It was very tasty!

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!
