Growing Alley Scarecrows
WHOLE SCHOOL SCARECROW MAKING COMPETITION spring 2016.
TO HELP KEEP THE BIRDS AND CATS AWAY FROM OUR ORCHARDS AND GROWING AREAS.
(we are encouraging the birds to stay in other areas by creating their perfect habitats.)
Year’s 1 to 6 have all had ago at making their Year Group scarecrows and we have had some very interesting and creative entries.
Classes were asked to think about their designs of their scarecrows:
LINKS TO DT/SCIENCE/LITERACY/MATHS/PROBLEM SOLVING/OUTDOOR LEARNING.
The Scarecrow's skeleton
The Scarecrow's head
The Scarecrow's hands & legs
The Scarecrow's stuffing
The finishing touches
The materials they were going to use
The way they were attaching everything together
The way they were going to make it waterproof
IT WILL BE A TOUGH DESCISION TO PICK THE WINNING SCARECROW!!!!
Year 4’S Scarecrow is nearly completed and we are looking forward to seeing him on Growing Alley.
Year 4 have planned their design of their scarecrow. They looked at what materials they needed, how they would create and attach the frame. They thought about how to keep him waterproof. They discussed what features to give him. They also thought deeply about recycled materials.
