The Parts of a Plant 

Year 5 children created this large scale collage flower as the central point of a plant parts display.

I drew the outline of the flower and got children ripping up a range of magazine pages, old postcards and cards etc. into smallish pieces and sorting them into the colours required.

Children then applied a mix of PVA glue and water (1:4, PVA: water) onto the paper and then on top of each piece of coloured collage when stuck on. This secures the collage and gives a nice, shiny finish.

The flower was then attached to the display.  My teaching assistant created a 3D effect due to the lack of space, which I think looks really good.  Please ignore the labelling though…a work in progress!
