Earlier this week, Badgers spent an afternoon making 'Grooved Ware' style Stone Age clay pots. They started by making a thumb pot and then rolled out some coils to add to the top of it. They used their fingers to smooth the edges and create a good finish. After that, they used tools to carefully add a geometric style pattern on to the pots.

Art Day 2015

This week we welcomed local artist Dee Cowell to our school. She showed the children how to draw woodland animals. The children studied the shape of the animals and then learnt how to mix the colours they needed to paint their animal, starting with just the primary colours, red, yellow and blue.

 

The woodland scene will be on display in our school. Thank you to Mrs Davies who came in to help for the day.

 

 

Some comments by the children....

 

'It was really good, we painted our own hedgehog.'

 

'It was good because I like painting.'

 

'I loved the different colours on the hedgehog spikes.'

 

'I learnt how to draw and paint an owl's feathers.'

 

'It was a good day. I learnt how to draw an owl and mix the right colours.'
