Maya Death Masks
As part of our topic 'Ancient Maya,' Year 3/4 have enjoyed designing, making and painting their own Ancient Maya death masks.
We had lots of fun today experiencing Victorian toys.
We asked ourselves these questions:
What is it made of?
What does it look like?
Do I like playing with it?
How do we play with it?
We then chose our favourite! Great work Year 1!
Our favourite toys!
Our first topic of the year is a history topic all about toys!
We have started the topic by bringing in our favourite toys from home.
We had so much fun sharing them with our friends and thinking about what they are made from.
Well done Class 1!
Ancient Egyptian Death Masks!
As part of our Ancient Egypt topic, we were set with the task to design and make our own Egyptian death mask.
We used a range of techniques and tools to create our masks and then, when they were dry, we painted them!
Well done Year 3, they are fantastic!
We have loved our art this half term! We have looked at the work of Orla Kiely, William Morris and Lindsay Phillips. We designed our own leaf prints and then made them using cardboard and string. Today we have created a print strip and we are very proud of our finished art work. Well done Year 3!
What can we do to help the rainforests?
