Blockhouse Bay Primary School - Our Inquiry: Belonging

For our inquiry this term we have been learning about 'Belonging'.

We first had to find out what a sculpture was, then we looked at different kinds of sculptures and different artists. We discussed what we liked about different sculptures and what kind of sculpture we wanted to create. The children decided on bottle top sculptures as they liked the idea of reusing materials and the bright colours used. Next we had to choose a location around the school and then we experimented with different designs. Here are some photos of the children planning their design using coloured counters...
