Paint some stones!

Old pillow case painting!

Art with nature...just don't do it on a windy day!! Miss Boertien.

Make a rainbow using a rolling pin. All you need to do is put blobs of different coloured paint in a long line and then let the child roll the rolling pin, this can also be done with mini rolling pins to make smaller rainbows. Simple but effective! Miss Codona

Make a fortune teller! The origami is a bit tricky and they will need help but it's great activity for learning colours, counting and we put PE actvities inside! Miss B.

Make a pretend drink!

Ok so this is a bit of a random task but lots of learning was involved in the end!

Make a pretend smoothie... my children used playdough, slime and out of date sprinkles and cream! YUK! We talked about the colours and textures. They then drew their design.

Be a clothes designer!

So this was a fun task and both children loved it that much that they started doing it again the next day! We used old stained clothes (lots of socks!) and cut them up to make clothes for the Barbie dolls. Lily needed some help and Leo made a couple of jumpers for his superheroes but ended up making clothes for himself! I cannot post the photos as far too embarrassing! He had armbands, headbands, belly tops...

Welcome to the nail salon! Miss Boertien.

Kandinsky Art -Mrs.Harkness

Mrs Harkness Art task- Colour Spinners- example. Miss B.

Lots of you have made masks before in class, and love to do it! So why not create your own and send us a picture! You can get a mask template off the internet and print it off, then decorate it yourself. This mask is a Brazilian mask that they use for the Rio Carnival, i love it because its so colourful and she made it all by herself. Miss Codona

Sandwich bag colour mixing.

This was real squidgy fun! 

We were learning about colour mixing today... we guessed first and then explored. Just squeeze two colours of paint (a small amount) into a clear sandwich bag, seal the bag and then mix together. 

What colour does black and white make? Or yellow and blue?

Decorate an old shoe. Miss B.

Nature art tasks...have fun! Miss Boertien.

Want to make a keepsake that will always remind you of this lockdown? Flower pressing is simple yet so effective. Let your child go and pick some flowers, then all you need to do is put them inside a heavy book to flatten them. Then use some grease proof paper and set your iron on low (adults do this part) iron over the grease proof paper with the flowers underneath. Once you've let them cool you can then let your child glue them on onto some paper and pop it in a little frame. Miss Codona

Read "The Hungry Caterpillar Story" or if you don't have it type it in on you tube where it can be read for you, then have a go at creating your own caterpillar. All you need is some leaves from outside and some felt tip pens! Miss Codona

I have been busy painting and drawing some pictures! Now I know there are lots of you that are budding artists and can draw some fabulous pictures! So let your child have a go at drawing or painting what they love, whether its a car, dinosaur, princess, flowers, butterflies etc. You can either draw an example for them or let them use their own imagination to create a master piece! It would be great if you could send some of your pictures in! Love Miss Codona

Miss Codona's Recycling Craft Activities.

Doodle hats.

Use paper and sellotape or a stapler to make a hat. This was my little boy's idea. They then took their pen for a walk and coloured in the spaces! Easy peasy! Miss Boertien. 

Make some armour or jewellery!

Use toilet rolls to create arm armour! And tin foil, cereal boxes and string (or a pipe cleaner) to make necklaces. Miss Boertien.

Outdoor rubbings! All you need is a crayon and some paper. Can you find some interesting shapes? Miss Boertien.

Family Handprint art activity......have a go! Mrs Tobin

Hi everyone, Mrs Edmondson here. I hope you’ve all had a good Easter and that you are enjoying the lovely weather.

I have been making creatures using toilet roll tubes and cardboard and foil from my Easter eggs. If you would like to make one you’ll need some coloured pens, glue/ sellotape and some scissors. You might need to ask a grown up to help you with cutting.

I would love to see if you can make a creature like mine or maybe you have an idea for a different creature.

Take care, love Mrs Edmondson
