Welcome to Class 2

What have Class 2 been doing?

Making Model Dinosaurs

Class 2 have been hard at work creating model dinosaurs for their topic.  They followed the work of a paleo-artist by first of all creating detailed wooden models of their chosen dinosaur’s skeleton.  This proved to be at first an extremely fiddly and difficult task but everyone rose to the challenge.

They then, fleshed out their models, so to speak with papier-mache to get the tendons and muscles in place.  After this the children use single sheets of tissue paper to recreate the dinosaur’s skin.

Finally, after researching on the internet and in books, what different skin colours different dinosaurs had the children looked carefully what colours to paint their models.

Finally they collected their models together and using a really life like back drop they photographed their models both separately and in groups.  They very soon realised that better photographs could be achieved by changing the direction of the shot and not having all the dinosaurs heading in the same direction in the group shots.

Well done Class 2 you should be very proud of your efforts.
