We had a huge day of art on Friday.
We read the book The Very Lonely Firefly by Eric Carle. We studied the pictures too so we could see how he made his collage illustrations. Have a look at the story on this clip.
Next we painted the background for our art work using black and blue paint.
We also painted a piece of paper with red on one half and brown on the other to make our firefly's wings and body.
We turned the heaters up really high to dry our paint during lunch time. After lunch we put our art together and added wobbly eyes and a glowing tail to our firefly and stars to our background.
We listened to Fireflies while we worked.
It was a very busy and fun day.
Have a look at us here.
