Upcycled paper mâché project

Finally after athletics, fun runs, and a short period of leave for me the kids are completing their paper mâché figures. Each class had a theme that matched with their classroom learning in English, science or history.
Some classes did animals and birds...

some made aliens...
others have made figures from our colonial past.
By next week most kids should be finished! I'll post more photos then!

Here is a selection of ceramic works made by the year 6/7 kids. They were given instructions on how to work clay as a slab or as a figure sculpture. They took notes and used this information to create models that related to the theme of research in their regular classrooms for history. Some are based on ancient Greek & Roman myths others are from Asian culture.
