Year 1 designed and made these winter wonderland decorations in their design and technology lessons. First the children made their own clay candle holder and painted it with metallic paint, with a small candle in the middle. Then they painted and decorated their circular base with acorn cups, pine cones, holly leaves, sycamore keys & horsechestnut shells that we found on our autumn trail in our science lessons. Small feathers (from Mrs Bird’s friend who breeds guinea fowl), added some extra interest before the whole thing was painted with glitter and finally sprayed with a dash of snow. Beautiful!
