Today Room 6 were given the challenge of creating some art that helped to explain about some key concept they had been learning about in class.
Here is some of the art created! To see more, come in and check out our school hall!

Wool and cardboard! Thats all you need for this craft :> You may want to put something on the cardboard (in this image they have used green craft paper).
There is a template below here which you can print off and put over the cardboard, or alternatively click on THIS LINK and follow steps one through to three. But instead of splitting the halves into thirds, split them into tenths. You will end up with twenty slices like below.
Cut a zigzag pattern between each slot. It will look like this image below (without the purple lines.)
Now choose the type of pattern you want. Try lots of different ones! Its all about the jumps you choose to take with the wool/string. The pattern above is 8 jumps, which gives you the smaller circle on the inside. You may want a larger circle - try 5 jumps. You may even want to do two different patterns with different colours of string.
These stars are easy and super fun to make. You can either use coloured paper as a base, or make your own patterns on plain paper!! A3 paper will give a bigger size star, but A4 paper may be a good place to start for your first try. I would probably use scrap paper to draft your first star - saves on wasted trees :>
Use a glass (or another round object).
Draw a circle around the circular object.
Make points through half. Then split the halves into thirds. You should end up with 6 marks.
Draw line between 2 point, skipping one in the middle. You will end up with a star.
Cut out the star.
Fold along the INNER lines.
Flip star over. Fold on the OUTER lines. This will make your star 3D.
Refold and pop out your star!
