This week the children were busy creating artwork based on our Arts Week theme of ‘Our Planet and Recycling’. Our initial artwork linked with our science learning on describing a tree and observing differences throughout the seasons.
First, everyone created a tree while using old newspapers. Then we became more adventurous by recycling a box and using its cardboard to create our whole class tree. We painted a background, tree trunk and cups from recycled egg boxes. Once dry, the children carefully placed the newly painted cups onto the tree.
During music, the children listened to two operas and explored the sounds while creating a magic spell board. They used some inspiration from the opera singer, Nicky Spence from ‘Alice’s Adventures Underground’.
