Space Art

As part of our Space topic we have been enjoying some exciting art activities. We made a range of different papers using printing equipment, finger painting and wax resist. We used this paper later for our collage art work based on planets. We also had great fun 'doodling' our own imaginary alien characters. We made them as 'wacky' as we could adding lots of wiggly arms, legs and eyes. We used our favourite ones to write descriptions of in our Literacy sessions.
Then we used clay, lolli-pop sticks, feathers beads and TONNES of GLITTER!!!! to invent our own new imaginary alien planets as a new setting for our Space stories. These activities really helped to extend our descriptive vocabulary!
