Great fire of London - simple idea. Using marbling inks to make the back ground and then draw and cut out a skyline. Great skills builder for Year 1/2. (by Sally Maddison)
Miss Lynch's Class
These last couple of weeks have been a bit manic - I'm also meant to be writing my master's dissertation at the moment, but I am (unfortunately) the queen of procrastination and updating my blog is far more interesting to do! So the last couple of weeks our literacy focus has been information texts; We made an anchor chart as a class - the children had a variety of non-fictions texts to look at and we discussed all of their features and added them to some large paper - it's really helped…
Quote: "This is an art display for our topic of The Great Fire of London (Year 2). The children each contributed to the border using oil pastels. The fire silhouette pictures were created using watercolour paint and then black pencil crayons over the top once the paint had dried. We looked at photographs of fire as well as a number of sunset silhouette photographs for inspiration."
