Messy planets!

img_44251 img_44261 img_44271 img_44291 img_44351 img_44371This week during our topic work we have been comparing the size of planets and looking at various pictures and video footage of them.

Using this information we drew and cut out planets and worked with a partner to paint them! We had to make new colours and shades by mixing colours. We discussed texture and patterns that appeared on some of the planets and how we could create that same affect.

Next week we will be visiting our class book corner, the library and researching on the computers to find out some facts about our planet. We will write our findings up in neat and these will be displayed underneath our beautifully painted planets in the classroom. We can’t wait for you to see our finished masterpiece when you have the opportunity to visit our classroom to see our work on the 6th December!

Take a look at us getting messy painting our planets and making img_44401papier mache planets with Miss Gilbert!
