We took Ipods into the school grounds to take photographs of the different parts of a plant. We became the leaf, stem, root and petal detectives! We looked in Foundation's playground, on the field, near the pond and outside the hall. We found lots of different plants, bushes and trees.
We looked at black and white pictures of sunflowers. Using oil pastels we used different colour families to put our design over the top of the picture. They look amazing!
We visited the Greenwood to collect items for a natural collage. We worked in small groups to find interesting things and collected them in a tub. Back in the classroom we had to stick them as collage in an imaginative way.
In the classroom we collected lots of natural objects such as shells, conkers, pinecones, thistle and a birds nest. We used our pencil to draw the objects looking closely at their shape, size and pattern. We also used our pencil to create dark and light shade to make our drawings look 3D.
