Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Look at them glow!

This week in Kingfishers and Nightingales Christmas has arrived! After getting into the Christmas spirit by decorating our classrooms and singing Christmas songs, we used our artistic talents to create our very own Christmas lights. We even used our knowledge of value to make them glow!

First, we traced around our template carefully to create the outline of our Christmas lights. We then used oil pastels to add colour.

Can you see how we used our white oil pastel to create the filament?

After that, we drew a wavy line with our oil pastel to create the wire for our Christmas lights.











Next, the real magic begun. We used our white chalk to trace around each of our lights. We made sure that each of our lights touched the wire! Then we used our finger to smudge the outline of our lights. This created a white glow around the edge of each of our lights.









Following this, we used coloured chalk to trace around each of our lights. Using our finger, we smudged the coloured chalk to create a colourful glow on our paper. We were amazed by how adding value to each of our lights made them look like they were glowing.












Our final step was to stick our oil pastel lights onto their matching outline. We had a fantastic time creating our Christmas lights and were so proud of our finished pieces.
