Thinking in 3 dimensions with KS1 children

This term our Key stage 1 children took inspiration from our sculpture course that took place during the Easter Holidays – Thinking in Three DimensionsDSC_0699

Louise began exploring the qualities of plasticineDSC_0704

…and used various found objects to build little abstract sculptures which the children displayed.DSC_0728 DSC_0730 DSC_0731 DSC_0733 DSC_0734 DSC_0735 DSC_0738

They made drawings of their sculptures DSC_0740 DSC_0741

And then made 2 dimensional collages based on their workDSC_0744

Can you see how they interpreted a 3D work using torn paper in 2D – very clever!DSC_0745 DSC_0782

Next they went on to explore the qualities of carving using soap


They looked at soap stone carvings for inspirationDSC_0068

Its nice and soft for little fingers to carve.DSC_0061

Each child made a design to work fromDSC_0063 DSC_0067

Then they began to carveDSC_0066 DSC_0070 DSC_0071

It was lovely to touch and a good place to start when talking about texture.DSC_0104 DSC_0105

The carving took lots of patience
