The Year 2 children at Michael Faraday School have been continuing their art work exploring some of the meanings that can be found in pictures. One of the main learning intentions for this work is to understand how a picture can tell a story.
An original piece of artwork was first looked at. The children were then asked to think what might have been taking place further outside of the picture frame that we can’t see.
This work has progressed so that each pupil has created a unique collage inspired out of this work. Once again the starting point was an original print. We asked the Year 2 class members to either recreate the whole picture, or to zoom in on an area of interest that they could see. The idea of framing a scene was explained.
Papers, leaves, felt and feathers were all used to help create the collage. It was great to see so many different ideas being created, all coming out of the original picture source. We are happy to share some of these in the photo gallery below.
