Wednesday, 9th November Year 2

A collaborative re-cycled materials art installation project will thread through this term.

Last term in class the children learned about French artist Bernard Pras.

Teddy told me, ‘He uses recycled things that people don’t use and then he makes collage.

Grayson added, ‘Yes, he uses toy cars to make hair’ and Harley added, ‘He uses natural materials, like rocks sometimes.’

In Earthclass today we also started looking at the works of artist, Michelle Reader, who makes figurative sculptures using found and recycled objects.

After research and discussion, the children started planning their ideas and considering what objects and materials they might use.

This project will also consolidate their science learning: Materials and their Properties as we revisit that vocabulary.
