Art day in 2C hooking with the book ‘The Spider Weaver’…

First we used wax crayons to practice mark making…

Next we used wax crayons to create colourful webs. We tried to include some marks we had practiced earlier…

Then we used water colours to create a green wash background to our web…

We wanted to add leaf prints to our background. We collected leaves from outside, we then carried out observational sketches of our leaves…

We the made leaf printing blocks out of foam. We then mixed colours to create different tones of green paint. We then printed onto our webs…

We then learnt how to do the running stitch. We added thread to our webs using the running stitch…

Finally, we added sequins, wax crayon and felt tip to add colour, sparkle and definition to our webs. They look truly amazing! Once displayed we will share our web gallery! 

In English this week, we researched facts about spiders. We then wrote some fantastic non chronological reports about spiders 🕷
