Creativity in Year 1

Year 1 have had a very creative few weeks! 

We have made some lovely mediation jars, created our own rangoli inspired coasters from clay and drawn our own interpretations of Charlie Mackesy’s lovely illustrations.  

Our meditation jars have really helped us settle when we are feeling a bit excited in class. We shake them and listen to relaxing music, whilst waiting for the glitter to settle.  

Our rangoli coasters have turned out brilliantly. First, we studied traditional rangoli designs. Then, we recreated them in clay using a variety of tools. Finally, we painted and glazed them and we are really proud of the outcomes. 

We have also used a variety of art resources to recreate our own versions of Charlie Mackesy’s characters. We will be using them next week to create our own stick puppets.
