Investigating Skeletons /

Next week we will be building our own skeletons with articulated joints. Your mission is to investigate where you find hinge joints around your home (can you find any other types of moving joint?) and practise The Skeleton Dance.

It would also be useful if you could collect some sturdy cardboard tubes from kitchen roll or toilet rolls.

In Year One we have been looking at the different Creation stories from around the world. This week we discussed the Aborigine Creation Story and how the Aborigine people of Australia have a very different view to Christians.

We looked at how the native Australian animals play a big part in these stories and how this is shown in Aboriginal artwork.

From this we chose to develop our dot painting skills as seen in a lot of Aboriginal artwork.

After we had practised these skills we chose to develop them by creating our own Australian animal dot paintings.

This is the outcome of our skill building and resilience to achieve a really effective outcome!

What do you think?
