Art- Week 6: Anglo Saxons
Every week on a Friday we do Art. Please find below an adapted activity we would be doing together in class.
WALT: create a braid.
You will need:
In pairs, each person has two bags and puts some small stones or earth inside each one to weigh them down. Tie a piece of wool to each bag. Gather up the other ends of the wool and tie them to a branch above your head; the bags should hang down to about waist height. To do the braiding two children should stand facing each other, holding a bag in each hand. The children then exchange the bags in their right hands by letting them swing towards the other person at the same time. They then exchange the bags in their left hands in the same way. Keep on repeating this and the braiding will form at the top of the wool.
