Stunning Multi-Media Silver Birch Canvases

Silver Birch Class (Y3) has had a super start to the new school year. The children’s maturity, levels of independence and hard work are great to witness! Everyone is looking forward to learning all about The Stone Age and Rocks and Soils and the children are already enjoying French! Our first Art project was to create a multi-media silver birch canvas. Starting with torn newspaper shapes and PVA glue, work on the trees continued with wax crayon resist, paint application using the tache (touch) technique and the use of masking tape before painting the blue of the sky. Final touches were added in black marker pen. Stunning work from everyone to make a great first display!

In English, we have been studying Stone Age Boy. This is an amazing text which really brings our History learning to life! Putting ourselves in the boy's shoes, we have created an early Stone Age Camp and 'painted pictures with words' to describe the various features of the camp including the fire and cooking equipment, berry and shellfish baskets, the animal skin tents, the tools and the boats.
