We are very creative here in Dragonflies Class! We love continuing to develop our fine motor and choice-making skills whilst having fun expressing our inner artist! This half term we will be learning all about Jungle animals and their habitats, and will be making our very own in our art lessons.
We had a lovely afternoon making parrots. We split each part of the parrot into pieces - the beak, the head and the body and made choices on which colours we would like to paint each bit! When each piece was dry we had help sticking them back together to make the parrot and then we stuck on some colourful feathers to make its tail!
We have been very busy making jungle animals. Some of us had an outline of a tiger and practised using PECS/communication aids to ask for the orange and black paint and the paint brush before getting to work on our masterpieces. Some of us even had a go at painting a tiger freehand with only a visual support! Michelle helped some of us to paint each part by modelling them step by step. Look at what a fantastic job we have done!
As we are an Eco School working towards the Green Flag Award, Dragonflies Class have been collecting empty milk bottles and reusing them to make elephants. We practiced our pincer grip by sticking pieces of tissue paper on to decorate them in lovely bright colours.
We have been practicing drawing lines in our Literacy and Mark-Making sessions... now we can draw fabulous stripes!
