We have been reading 'We're going on a Bear Hunt' and this week we have been using our story to inspire our creativity.
We have learnt to use a different type of paint this week, power paints. They are tricky to work with as we only get one brush each and have to remember to clean it in the water pot between colours. We have also learnt how to use a mixing pallet and how to wash it up when we're finished.
We learnt how to use the colours we had, blue. red and yellow to make brown. To make brown you had to mix all 3 colours together! We used the brown paint to colour in some lovely bear pictures.
We have also been trying to make different types of bears at the creative table. First decided which bear we wanted to make by picking a reference picture, next we used a pencil to draw the outline of our bear, then we added different coloured fabrics for the fur and last we added some googly eyes. They look fantastic!
