'Take a Seat'

Our art project this term was called 'Take a Seat'.

Our challenge, at the end of the topic, was to make a seat out of only newspaper and sticky tape.

We had to work in teams. First we made a rough plan and drawing on a large piece of paper.

We then spent some time investigating how to roll and fold newspaper to make it strong.

After that we started to make our chair. We all took on different roles in our teams. Some children did a great job cutting up the sticky tape, an essential job.
Some children made legs. They had to make sure that they were strong and the same length.

Finally we had to put all the parts together to make our chairs and test them to see that they were strong and stable enough to support our toys. They did and they were great.

Mrs Bruce was so impressed with our teamwork.
