Year Two’s Big Print

In Year Two we love a ‘Big Write’: we rearrange the tables in the classroom into a horseshoe shape, put some calming (LED) candles on a table in the middle, add in some soothing background music and write. Today we applied the ‘Big’ principle to another area of the curriculum – art. Today was ‘Big Print’ day although the children spent a few moments guessing what sort of ‘big’ activity lay ahead! Big Write, Big Clay Painting, Big Exam and Big Dream were put forward as suggestions… 

After writing our names on the paper (an important but easily forgotten task!) we chose which colour paint to use for our own string prints. We made the blocks by gluing string on top of the seaside-themed pictures that we drew onto squares of cardboard. We carefully dabbed the paint onto the string before turning the block over and pressing it down onto the paper, whilst not smudging the image. We were really pleased with our work. We talked about how art is creative so it doesn’t always looke exactly like you think it’s going to but that’s ok!

Can you tell what our pictures are?
