Once Upon A Dream

once upon a dream

This half term Sapphire class are going to be entering a poetry competition called Once Upon A Dream. In this competition we have to create a piece of poetry inspired by a dream we have had. This week, to really inspire our writing, we have created our very own dream catchers.

Dream catchers were originally made by the Native American people. Dream catchers are hung above children’s beds. The net part of a dream catcher is designed to catch any nightmares so that the children have peaceful, beautiful dreams.

Keep checking our blog to read the dream poems we create!

Greek Pots Update

Today we continued to create our pots in the style of a Greek vase.

First, we had to paint our pots orange like the Ancient Greeks did.

Then, we had to sketch our designs, some of us chose to tell the story the myths we created and some of us decided to tell the story of a Greek myth on our vases.

We now need to leave the paint to dry and tomorrow we will be able to paint our designs onto our pots.
