Amazing sculptures! Fox, badger, rabbit or hedgehog!
As artists, the children began to explore techniques of moulding and shaping playdough, in preparation for their later clay-work. They had to think carefully about how they could create the effects they will need to represent their chosen animal.
It was all about author-reader research this afternoon, as the children practiced their knowledge and discovered facts about their chosen animal. This information will really help them with their challenge!
Saturn began this enquiry as scientists today! They worked together to match offspring to the corresponding adult animal. They had to look really closely to notice key features of some of the creatures and search for how they have developed once the adult had matured. What great examples of being Team-players and showing Resilience!
