In Term 3, whilst at home, Cuckoo class were looking at dinosaurs so in Art we decided we would make some dinosaur puppets! We researched what string/marionette puppets are, we planned and designed our own dinosaur one, then we put together a prototype to check our design worked, we then made our puppets and evaluated them!
They are so awesome, here is a little video showing them off!
This week, Woodpecker class created their Christmas cards by using their collaging and watercolour skills.
In art we have been looking at colours and how they make us feel. We read the lovely story of The Colour Monster (below) and we have been thinking about what emotions we attach to what colours. Then last week we had a go at using the monsters emotions and creating collages, using different materials, of things that make us feel those emotions. See if you can spot what makes us feel...sad, loved, calm, happy, scared or angry.
Here are a few pictures from our fun, first day together!
This morning we spoke about being in Cuckoo class, we learnt about using our pegs during child initiated play, we drew some pictures and wrote some words or sentences about our favourite thing we did in the summer holidays. Then this afternoon we started with a story about a Cuckoo, we then did some AMAZING counting and finally we painted some pictures of ourselves.
Unfortunately, it was rainy so we had a go at painting with natural materials instead.
