Dreamcatchers

It is half-term! Hooray! This was the last project of our "Road Trip USA" module. We began the lesson by discussing the symbolism and story of dreamcatchers. Next, we looked at a range of examples and talked about creating our own dreamcatcher but with a modern twist. I came across this take on the project and thought it would be perfect for the short amount of time that we had.

Each child was given a paper plate. We folded it in half and cut a semi-circle around the rim of the plate which produces the hoop outline shape of our dreamcatcher. We then used the circle part that was cut out to create our shape for the middle. Children then painted both the shape and the hoop. The following week was spent weaving our dreamcatcher and adding extra decorations like beads and feathers.

Here are some of the results:




Great job, 4B! This has been a fantastic half-term and I'm looking forward to our next topic, "Blue Abyss" where we'll be diving underwater.
