1st class

In class the children were learning about types of homes. They started  by discussing all the different types, then went on to draw and paint them.

The children then made printing blocks of their houses. we did a workshop on colour, mixing and blending colours . To finish the children painted out a large roll of wallpaper , blending their colours as they went. we used this to print the buildings on to.

This acted as a great backdrop to their colourful work.

Then they worked on clear contact paper and tissue paper to create imaginary buildings. we would used these to brighten up the coridor as the light could shine through.

I showed the children some very simple techniques using the tissue paper. They came up with some very impressive ways of using it for themselves. Far more sophisticated than i had shown. I was very impressed with their inventiveness.
