We have brgun our new Science topic all about Light.

We thought about caves and the darkness inside and camping when we have to go to the toilet in the middle of the night!

The children had to decide what a light source was and they sorted a collection of objects to decide whether or not they were a light source....

Clay Dragon Eyes

Published on 21 October 2019

The children designed and made dragon eyes using air drying clay.

We learnt about slip and how to use it to help with the joins and that there was no such thing as too wet! 

We talked about the way that the clay would dry and that if the clay was different degrees of wet that as it dried...

Watercolour Dragon Eyes

Published on 14 October 2019

We designed our own dragon eyes using sketching pencils. We then used a black wax crayon to go over the outlines of the design. Then we washed our dragon eyes using the watercolours and tried to blend our colours to increase the intensity in the eyes. The children enjoyed making these in our art day.
