Harvest Art

We have had a brilliant time creating our scarecrow pictures. We began by painting the fields in watercolour, paying attention to the patterns left by the tractors harvesting the crops. Then we used scrap materials to create our scarecrows. The effect was amazing!

    Really nice to see the photographs that go with the process, very interesting. Nice visual aspect to your blog, our students have just started a two week break but we will get them to have a look at your page when they come back. We have some students who live in a semi-rural area but whether they use Scarecrows anymore, I'm not actually sure!

  2. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit us Mr Webb! We don't see too many scarecrows either so we had to do alot of research!

  3. Well I think you can be very proud of how they turned out Miss Harrison. And I am sure that the students are excited that people from all around the world get to view their work. Perhaps you might consider changing your comment settings from only people with google accounts to anyone. It might increase the comments that your students get to your site.

    1. Brilliant idea! I didn't realise I could have that option with comments.
      My class are so excited to have a connection with a school on the other side of the world! We looked up Hamilton, New Zealand on our globe. The children are looking forward to getting to know your class.
