Long Legged Animals by Years 3 & 4 Making Club

By Sheila Ceccarelli

These sculptures were made by year 3 & 4 pupils over the course of three, one hour after-school sessions, as part of DT & Making Club, at Milton Road Primary School.

Following on from the 40 Minute Cardboard Challenge, I wanted pupils to have the chance to explore making their own sculptures and to take on sculptural challenges like how to construct with a variety of materials, including Modroc, and (most importantly) how to make their creations stand.

Using the theme of long legged animals meant that characteristics could be exaggerated and pupils could consider the animals’ stance as a vehicle to capture their ‘essence’.
