Children in Jeffer class-yr3 are reading Pebble in my pocket as a basis for the class topic. They are studying the formation of the Earth and its geological time. In Art we are looking at natural texture and tone found in rocks, pebbles and fossils. The children have learnt different techniques to represent texture in natural objects and have experimented with a variety of drawing materials and tools.
For the final project they manipulated clay to make a slab and imprint fossils on it with different plastic objects and painted it blending natural colours.
