Wise Owls in 1S


Here is our artwork, which has gone up on the wall in our classroom this week. As it is nearly time for our Harvest festival, we have been thinking about Autumn wildlife and the creatures which will be out and about now that the nights are drawing in.
We each made a wise owl using wallpaper, coloured card and paint to create the night sky.

We think they look fantastic!



Peter Pan collages

This week we have been working hard on our Peter Pan topic work. We have been learning about Neverland and making our own posters to tell you how wonderful it is.

We have also been perfecting our collage skills by making Peter Pan scenes in the art room. Here is one of the finished pieces –



 To make the collages, we followed the instructions below:

1) Cover white card using ripped up paper and PVA glue. Try to not leave any spaces in between your pieces of paper.


2) Make a skyline using shiny card. (Mrs Robinson helped us a little with this!)


3) Stick a shiny circle on for the moon.


4) Position your Peter Pan cut out so that he looks as though he’s flying high above London!


Why not have a go at drawing your own Peter Pan? Ours are on display in our classroom.

Giant Galapagos tortoises

In 1S we have been reading a book called ‘We’re Sailing to Galapagos’ and learning about the islands. We have learnt that the islands have a very famous inhabitant, the giant tortoises. Did you know that these huge animals are the symbols of the Galapagos islands, or that they can live for up to 150 years?!

The book is full of wonderful illustrations, and here are our own attempts at making giant tortoises through collage.
