Nature rubbings

It's been gorgeous weather recently and we've been making the most of it. During Outdoor Learning we went exploring for different textures in the environment. The children recorded what they'd found by making nature rubbings. We then put all of the pictures together to make a collage.

The collage is now on display outside my classroom and looks amazing!

As I left school today, our tipi was being put up again for the summer so expect some tipi-based pictures soon!

Collages with natural materials

We've been learning about Andy Goldsworthy this week. My class loved his sculptures and got really excited about the idea of making their own. We started with baby steps by making a collage with natural materials that we found in the school grounds. The outcomes were really lovely and the children had a great time.

Here are just a few of our pieces of art.
