We have started to think about how shoes are made. We have investigated our own shoes and had a go at making a shoe from one piece of paper, but we found this did not work. The children spotted that shoes need to be made from different parts or pieces that are joined together – so we are now practising the skills of joining. This week we have been having a go at stitching.
This week we have been learning about 2D shapes. We have had great fun spotting shapes all around us in the playground and in the classroom. We have even made our own firework sky artwork using 2D shapes.
Year One have been really enjoying learning about an artist and learning skills to make them become better artists. We have looked at using natural things from the environment to create patterns and images.
The children have been learning about ‘line’ and looking in detail at what they are drawing. They have also learnt about ‘tone’ -how light or dark a colour may be and also about mixing paint and creating warm and cold colours.
Look out for some more pictures of our work!…..coming soon…..
