It’s so good to be back seeing all the children’s happy faces around school. I am teaching in Lommond and Hopetoun this year. Whilst I have been there we have been doing lots of art activities. This term we are working alongside the topic of story land. We have been learning about Elmer the Elephant. We used lots of coloured squares and glued them onto an elephant template. The children enjoyed looking at all the bright colours and choosing where to put them on their elephants.
We also done some printing with bright colours using blocks to look like Elmer’s patches. We made ‘you-nique’ pictures that are all different with a picture of ourselves in the middle. The children loved getting messy with the paint!
We have been learning the story about the Tiger who came to Tea too! We made some lovely tiger faces using orange tissue paper and black card.
We enjoyed listening to the Story ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt’. The children made sensory pictures using various materials for each of the locations in the story. Long wavy grass, a snowstorm, a forest, oozy mud, a river and then finally….. A BEAR!!! The children enjoyed feeling the different materials and textures and sticking them on to create their own story.
It has been lovely also being part of the daily routines such as snack and lunch time and other activities that take place on a Wednesday and a Thursday.
