Year 5 & 6: Stacked Cups


In Years 5 and 6, we have been considering the effective use of pattern and colour in our compositions. I showed the children how to keep their teacups an even size as they drew their stack. They decided how many cups to draw, then decorated them and added a painted background.

Some children chose to decorate a cup for each member of their family. Some just had fun inventing patterns and others chose designs to reflect their own interests and characters:

Here they are finished!
