Autumn 1: Rainforest Collages

This half-term year 5 have been creating collages inspired by the rainforest, linking to the book they have been studying in English. The children started by exploring the shapes and forms of the animals of the rainforest through drawing and collage. Before creating Henri Rousseau mixed media collages, which incorporated paper cut techniques, oil pastels and chalk drawing. In addition to their wonderful rainforest collages, they produced and curated Maya artefacts to be displayed in their own museum. See the below galleries to see them at work and see what they've made:
