In y1 today we painted teddy bears. We had a book day (a week behind the rest of the world!) and they were looking at traditional stories - ie. Goldilocks etc.
After a quick drawing session of how to represent teds using simple shapes (circles and ovals) we went onto using brushes and painted the shapes straight onto the paper, using brown paint that we mixed from scratch (red, yellow and then blue).
Yesterday in y2 we printed some Tudor houses using lengths of wood and the edges of lollipop sticks(to go with the 'fire' we painted last week - to eventually make a piece representing the Great Fire of London).
Oops - should have turned that last one round!
