In Oak Class this term we have been creating lots of different art work. We started off the term by doing a project linked to the book, "Journey" by Aaron Becker. Each class in the school had to create a display based around a different page of the book. We had to paint lots of brown trees on corrugated card and use sponges to make a bark effect.
We then worked on some self-portraits. We looked in the mirrors at our skin colours and had to try to mix paints to make the different skin tones. We had to look carefully at our eyes to try to paint them the correct colours.
After that we started some very early Christmas cards! Our cards get sent home so that if our parents want to buy some they get printed and turned into real cards! We did hand printing for our cards. Some of us made Santas and some of us made reindeer.
After that we were reading ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt’. We made bears by carefully ripping up paper and sticking it down to create the shape of a bear. We had to use a pen to add on the facial features at the end.
