Weeks 7 and 8 (w/c 1/6 and 8/6)

After a good look at the three main dinosaur time periods (Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous) your P3 will have an idea of how each landscape looked. The art activity is to make a mini habitat outside out of natural materials and chalk. You have all astounded me with your creativity and resourcefulness.....not all of you will have chalk....I'm looking forward to seeing your alternative materials for this task. These next photos are of what P3 have produced in previous years.

Weeks 9 and 10 (w/c 15/6 and 22/6)

In the next activity your P3 can create some dinosaur silhouettes. The first job is to create a background which can be a sunset, a sunrise and dark nighttime or daytime. This will depend on the resources and art supplies that you have at home! If you have watercolour paints, a background can be done easily with a thick brush. The next job is to cut some dinosaur silhouttes out of black paper/card. Et voila....beautiful dinosaur scene!

The effect of stars in the sky can be achieved by using salt to make marks on the watercolour. It has to still be wet to achieve this.
