1st and 2nd class Comenius project groups!!

We have five groups in our class.
We have named the groups after our Comenius Partners-Spain, Finland, France, Austria, and England.
We had a Country of the Week project.
We learned about one of our partner countries and looked at the Comenius website and other interesting sites.
Every week we had a party with food from the country we were learning about.
It was fun.

Art from Reused and recycled materials

Here are some pictures we made from Fabric and Fibre

Old clothes and sacks were cut up to provide the materials

Buttons, ribbons, trims and lace were collected also.

The stones were simply collected and painted!

The tiles were acquired from a tile shop which was closing down! We painted the tiles.

Recycling activities

Halloween Art from reused and recycled materials!

As part our Visual Arts Curriculum we decided to design and make Halloween Costumes

We reused and changed the appearance of old clothes to make costumes.

We created new costumes from recycled materials.

We used ordinary clothes with face paint to create scary characters.

All the ideas were unique and different.

We had prizes for the best efforts.

We hope you like our ideas!
