Old Boxes for Art

Posted on June 15th, 2017 by Sparrow Class

Dear Parent,

A part of our last art project in class we will be exploring vehicles, mechanisms and wheels/axis. Once we have look at each aspect we will be constructing our very own vehicles using old cereal/rectangular boxes.

Should you find yourself recycling old cereal boxes or any type of rectangular box could I kindly ask that you give it to your child to bring to school as we will need quite a few to complete the lessons.

Many Thanks,

Miss Kelly/Mrs Filan

This coming fortnight Sparrow class are going to be experimenting with tie-dye as part of our Art and Design topic for this term.

As a result we need the children to bring in an old white t-shirt/vest or anything white that you do not mind your children dying.
