We ended our Inventions and Inventors topic by creating a mobile phone case of our own. We had a design specification and had to use new skills to make our final product.
This week, we have made a contribution to 'The Big Clean Up' organised as part of Wigan Council's 'The Deal'. We have had a visitor from Wigan Council who explained how to reduce,recycle and re-use our rubbish. We also created posters to help reduce litter, which have been displayed around school) and art work re-using the litter we collected on our 'Big Clean Up'.
As part of our 'Above and Beyond' topic, we have been studying artists who use nature to inspire them. We have also been improving our colour-mixing skills to give us a more varied spectrum of colour choices when we paint.
Using Georgia O'Keeffe's artwork as inspiration, we created our own version of 'Abstraction White Rose'.
