We were working hard in groups for active learning.
For art, last week we had to paint a wash on our A3 page to create a background. This is were you use paint and water to create a lighter colour across the page. Next we used brown paint to create a winter tree, we started at the bottom and added lots of branches as we went to fill the entire page. We then used thinner paint brushes to add black detail of bark and knots on the tree.
In our exploration tray, we had to work together to build a bird house. We also had a birds nest we used magnifying glasses to take a closer look. We could see straw, feathers, moss and even some animal hair. It was very exciting!
