This half term, we’re going to discover that animals come in all shapes and sizes! We’ll study animal artwork, draw detailed animal pictures to capture their special features and make collages, sculptures and prints. Famous animal fables will make us laugh, and we will have fun reading them aloud. We’ll spot similarities and differences between animals, look at different habitats around the world and investigate camouflage. Designing a zoo is even on the agenda!
Today we worked together as a class to learn the nursery rhyme, Old MacDonald Had a Farm. We suggested some unusual animals that he might have on his farm. Then we added new sounds to match each animal and practise their new ideas aloud.
Today we have looked at a range of animal furs and skins. We observed the patterns and textures closely and then used to paint to create our own interpretation of the animal markings.
