Our class Topic book for Literacy, (Journey to Jo’burg by Beverley Naidoo) has truly inspired Camels class in producing some amazing cross-curricular art work. Journey to Jo’burg is set in South Africa. Camels class have been studying and observing wall paintings that are always created by the South African Ndebele women, and this tradition and style is passed down in the families from generation to generation by the mothers. A well-painted home indicates the female of the household is a good wife and mother. She is responsible for the painting of the outside gates, front walls, side walls, and usually the interior of her home.
The children looked at a range of painted houses, and they had to select parts of these home designs to reproduce their own unique designs in the same style as the painted homes. When the children were asked to paint their final designs onto A5 cotton fabric, they were only allowed to select 3-4 colours of their choice. The whole class produced amazing and unique work which will be displayed in the hall for everyone to see.
Well done to all the camels class for successfully completing your first hump! Last week was positive and I look forward to working with such an amazing class. Let’s reach for the stars!
