We have studied paintings of flowers by Georgia O’Keefe and used sketching techniques and close observations of shape and size to replicate our favourite paintings. Next week we will add colour using pencil, watercolours or pastels.
Our topic for this term is rainforests, learning all about where they are in the world, what the climate is like, what plants and animals survive there and why they are so important to us. Today we made our own “forest in a bottle” and we will be watching them to see what happens in the water cycle and what conditions are like in the rainforests. We also filled our classroom with rainforest creatures.
