    I love it! I’ve been thinking for ages that I need to contribute some of my ideas to this wonderful website too. I run after school art classes too and find them to be energetic, fun and really lively – great stuff to take back to my own work.

    LOVE the polar bears, they are fantastic! Thanks for the ideas and keep them coming!

    Many thanks

    […] on from the Year 3 and 4 Drawing and Making after school club at Bourn Primary Academy in which we made polar bears, we went on to construct icebergs for our bears. We then created an icy installation in the school […]

    I love these polar bears. I just finished a papier mache unit with my second and third graders and it was a bit of a challenge! I love how the children drew their bears 1st!

      I think modroc is often easier than paper mace – less drying time and easier to model!

    I thought this was so brilliant. I had two classes, P1 – P3 and P4 – P7 over 8 1 hour sessions. The children sketched and made the MODROC polar bears. We didn’t quite have time to do the glaciers but they are going to finish them in their Golden Time. I did them a fact sheet about polar bears and learned some things myself too. Thanks very much it was inspirational!
