The children were already familiar with the text and had also visited our outdoor learning area to locate 'Bog Babies' and find out about different habitats. In the art room we looked at some of the illustrations in the book for inspiration.
Some children worked in groups to create the Bog Baby, they used blue resources to create a collage. Teamwork and cooperation were needed during this task, as it can often be tricky to produce art as a group.
The children were encouraged to use different lines, shapes and textures in their work.
Another group of children were inspired by the shells in the book. We used pens to create different shell shapes, being careful to add detail with fine paintbrushes and watercolours once we had finished.
The final group of children chose to look at the different types of plants that were found in the illustrations.
The children used different art media to create curling ferns and cow parsley, being careful to add detail to their work.
The children worked incredibly hard and can't wait to see their artwork on display in their classrooms.
