This half term year 4 became designers. They researched different styles of vintage 1940s wallpaper and created their own version of a mood board, to collect all of their ideas. The children then selected their chosen design and created a view finder to capture a section of the design to enlarge and sketch. Once the design stage was complete, the children moved onto carving their design into a polystyrene tile and rolling ink over it to press onto paper. Once dry, the children cut and attached their wallpaper to their diorama.
As well as using their art skills, the children selected and imported images from the internet to use for typical 1940s home features and made nets for furniture. They also applied their learning of electricity in science to create a working light bulb.
The children really enjoyed this project and it was lovely to see how proud they were of the finished product. Take a look below!
