Welcome to Year 1
The Heatherlands Way
During Arts week in Yr1 we explored our senses and creating art through nature.
We went on walk on the nature trail collecting different autumn treasures, looking at colours and exploring textures with bark rubbings. We used our Autumn leaves to print some lovely leaf mandalas using autumnal colours. We created some lovely mixed media autumnal art work by creating our background and treat with paint and adding texture using tissue paper. We created our own tactile clay tiles using a range of clay tools, techniques and autumn treasures to imprint and create textures. We were very proud of our work.
What a week year 1 have had! At the start of the week we had a visitior to talk about some of the toys and games they played with when they were little. They were different to ours today - it had no batteries and we couldn't play it on the internet!
Then, after our science test to find the most waterproof material, we made a coat for our teddies to keep it dry in this horrible weather!
To end the week we quietly sketched some of our toys. We were looking at creating light and dark lines with our pencil and observed our toys carefully.
Thanks for your continued support and we look forward to the last couple of weeks of this half term!
