If you found a magic seashell and you had one wish, what would you wish for? Reception have been thinking about their wishes..
More? You want to see more?? Here is even more!
Year 2 have really enjoyed getting to know the ‘Penelope and the Suitors’ painting and we have particularly loved learning the story behind the painting of Penelope and her husband Odysseus! Have you found where Odysseus is hiding in the painting? We have been reading lots of other Greek Myths this week during our storytime as we have been so inspired!
Here we are getting to know the painting artistically and dramatically!
This morning we discussed the sea in the painting. We used cotton buds to paint different patterns and colours of the sea onto foil.
When we discovered that Penelope was the wife of Odysseus in Homer’s Odyssey, we were inspired to look into Greek myths. We decided to look below the surface of the water and imagine what Greek mythological creatures might be lurking below….
Year 2 had a go at creating observational drawings of the painting yesterday. They chose a section which they liked the best and sketched it really carefully.
Reception have been drawing sea creatures .
