Today we had a go at making our own Stone Age cave paintings like the ones found in Lascaux Caves in France. We closed the blinds, turned the lights off and tried to imagine we were really painting inside a deep, dark cave.
Sapphire class received another email from our friend Stone Age Boy this week. Stone Age Boy explained that his friend OM’s village had been destroyed by a storm and all the houses had been destroyed.
We told Stone Age Boy that we would write him some instructions of how to make a Stone Age House so that he could help to rebuild OM’s village. But before we could write some instructions we needed to have a go at making a Stone Age house for ourselves.
And here are some of our finished houses…
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Dream catchers were originally made by the Native American people.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!
Here are our finished Greek Vases.
We finished our pots by sketching our designs onto our vases and painting over it with black paint. We had lots of fun creating our pots and we can’t wait to show them to our grown ups.
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.
