For World Maths Day 2021 we decided to combine maths with art. We had great fun creating Tangram pictures using just 7 2D shapes. Can you name the shapes we have used? Can you spot the animals that some of us made too?
Home Learning Art Work
Just take a look at some of the fabulous art work Year 1 have been doing at home.
Our Favourite Toys
Today, during our home school art lesson, the children had a go at an observational drawing of their favourite toy. First they looked carefully at the outline, next they added in the details and finally they added the correct colours. I'm sure you will agree how fantastic they look and so like the original toy.
We Will Remember Them
We have been learning about Remembrance Day and learning why we wear poppies.
We have read the book
"Where the Poppies Now Grow," by Hilary Robinson and Martin Impey.
It is the story of Ray and Ben, two childhood friends who go off to fight in the First World War.
We thought about what happens on Remembrance Day and why we are thankful. We did some writing and turned it into a soldier. We were very impressed with our very own Perton First School regiment. We hope you are too!
As part of our Bears topic, we have been learning about Paddington Bear.
We have used our painting and collage skills to create our very own Paddington. Take a look, I'm sure you'll agree they all look fabulous!
