Spring 1 - Paws, Claws and Whiskers

Soft fur, sharp claws and twitching whiskers. What's your favourite animal? One that meows? One that barks? Or one that scurries or slithers? Let's find out what year 1 discovered and experienced! 

An animal owner from zoolab visited year 1!



Animal skins and furs


Children used hard and soft pencils to draw lines to create animal skin patterns. Then they used a range of collage materials to make textures and patterns based on the natural markings of a range of animal skins and furs.



Year 1 designed and created their very own imaginary pet! 


Children were provided with templates of familiar animals to plan their ideas. They were offered a selection of animal markings and colours for inspiration. Children then created an imaginary version of a familiar pet. They used collage materials, building on previous skills.
