At the end of last week dens began to be constructed and more animals emerged. After having their face painted Clara and Nevaeh became ‘Rainbow Kittens’, so we started this week by listening to Eric Carle’s story ‘The Artist Who Painted a Horse Blue’. We looked at how Eric Carle used a collage of vivid colours to create his imagery and this challenged us to consider how we might represent different animal’s colours and skin. On paper, we began painting a wide range of colours and gluing different textures that will form some of our animal creations. On a more philosophical tack, we began thinking about the question, ‘are animals good for us?’ I’ll let you know!
