In our learning journey lessons, our focus is to develop our understanding of the Ancient Egyptians. In this topic, we will be covering a number of areas of the curriculum including Geography, History, Music, D.T. and Art.
In Art, the children have explored using colourwash to create backgrounds. They were given the option of using hot colours to create a daytime setting in Egypt or cold colours to create nighttime setting. The children then created silhouettes of the pyramids using black paper to stand out against their colourwash background. Some children even investigated to see how they could make their pyramids look 3D.
