Step 1 - Research
We started the spring term by looking at Dianna Beltran Herrera's paper sculptures. We identified features of the birds and their colours.
Step 2 - Experimentation
We began to use a variety of pencils to make different marks and then we tested these new skills to observe and draw different feathers. We also experimented with oil pastels and paper to create layers of textured feathers.
Step 3 - Design
We choose different British birds and then began to decide how we were going to create them. Some children wanted to use paper and others wanted to create their sculpture using oil pastels and paper.
Step 4 - Make
Step 5 - Evaluate
We spent the lesson creating our final pieces and then evaluating them, thinking about the process and what we have learned.
