Matisse inspired collage
Inspired by Matisse’s ‘Polynesia: The Sea’, Year 1 children cut out shapes of sea creatures and plants. They then added their shapes onto a large piece of blue card to create a class collage.
Tropical and British fish
We also studied the colours and patterns of fish from warm and cold climates and discussed the differences. The children then painted and printed (using various mark making tools) their own fish, some from British waters and others from tropical oceans.
