Exploring Materials and Change KS1
Leaf buds in spring, flowers in summer, seeds in autumn, chalk, flint and soil year round ensure there are plenty of natural materials for pupils to handle in our outdoor setting. We will go out into the woods to collect, sort, identify and name materials and objects and then use our finds to make pictures, sculptures and art.
Children are encouraged to learn the names of plants and their parts. We will handle man made materials in the classroom and sort them into recycle bins in an introduction to recycling. Finally by asking what will happen to our natural art in the weather outside we consider change, decay and recycling in nature.
(Allow a short day and bring lunch)
Pre or post visit work at school might include a session on recycled and scrap art.
