Today the group took inspiration from nature to print cards for Mothering Sunday. They collected foliage from the school grounds and printed their design. They also tried marbling to decorate the inside of the cards.
Today the group enhanced fabric with printed patterns using a range of vegetable shapes. First we chopped the vegetables to see what shapes they made. Next, we designed a pattern which was then copied onto fabric.
the group used the string block they made last week to print wallpaper.
today the group made a string block to ink and print next week. They glued string on a block in a shape they designed. While waiting for the glue to dry they went back to last week’s tile and used the printing press to print their design.
8D enjoyed a sensory experience in English today. We are reading ‘The Breadwinner’ which is set in Afghanistan. We tried rice, thin curry and naan washed down with Afghan style tea. Everyone sampled the food and enjoyed it … apart from the tea!
Students voted to visit McDonald’s today to practise their skills.
