Year 2 had been looking at he topic of ‘Bounce’ which involved thinking about how bodies move when doing different actions and playing sports. We started by looking moving wooden mannequins into different positions and drawing them then made our own figures from pipe cleaners.
We covered the wire figures with foil to give their bodies more shape then wrapped them using strips of tissue and glue. We attached the figures to a cardboard base and some children chose to make a ball for their figure.
The final step was to paint the figures using bright colours.
