Year 1 & 2: Insect Design - part 1


In Key Stage 1 this half-term, we are studying mini-beasts. In our Art lessons, the children are designing and making their own insects using card, paper, wooden sticks and pipe cleaners. These pictures are from Miss Milton-Thompson's Year 1 class.

We began by studying some wonderful close-up photography of insects and beetles. The children planned their project and decided what materials and equipment they would need. At the end of the lesson, we practised some paper sculpture techniques. Next week, we will make the insects that we have designed:


Here are some of the children's designs:


I can't wait to see the finished projects!

And here are some of them:


The children created some wonderful insects: well done everyone!
