Year 1 discussed tessellating patterns and looked at the tessellating hexagonal design inside honeycomb.
We draw our own honeycomb by tracing around hexagons with a yellow pastel. It was a bit tricky making our own tessellating patterns but I thought Year 1 did extremely well and were very resilient!
After this step, we painted each hexagon using watercolour paints.
Year 1 students each had a turn doing printmaking. I had carefully carved a bee out of lino, which Year 1 students rolled black paint onto with rollers, then pressed the lino on to their honeycomb paintings.
The result is fantastic! Well done Year 1!
