Spring Term: The Great Plague

The Great Plague

Here is our topic plan for this gruesome topic! 

Art:  Tie-Dye

Firstly, we learnt how to fold our T shirts. We had three different options which were spiral, crunch or fold which would create the pattern on our final product. Once folded, we tied them up tightly by using elastic bands. Dressed in gloves and aprons, we then applied the colours to our T -shirts thinking about what the effect of mixing these might have on our finished T-shirt. The next process was rinsing the T-shirts and finally, a fixer was applied to ensure that the dye didn't run straight out of the T-shirt.

Learning Italian

Danila from Lazio visited us last Wednesday and taught us the Italian numbers from one to ten and some Italian greetings. After that, she explained to us what life is like in Lazio which we found fascinating because it quite different to ours due to the hot climate.

 

Art: Making Maracas 

 

Inspired by STOMP, we used recycled plastic bottles to make maracas. We decorated them with traditional African designed before trying them out!

Here are some pictures of our final products:
