(All together now "awww"!!)
We got our totem pole up and it was just as fantastic as we expected!
In the afternoon we had a party with a disco, treats to eat and games to play! It was a great was to round off the summer!
Huge thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make the summer scheme such brilliant fun!

Day 15....

We can hardly believe we're at the penultimate day of summer scheme!

This morning we finished our paper tee pees, they're really lovely, much more colourful in real life than in this photo!
We also made headbands with feathers in them to wear at our pow wow tomorrow!

This afternoon we were visited by 'Owl Magic' - at was all about the feathers today!!
David and Colin bought 5 different owl for us to meet! We felt so lucky that we got to be so close to their beautiful birds! We got to hold them on our arm and to stroke them, we couldn't believe how soft they were!

Everyone went home feeling great after a really exciting afternoon, we'd recommend Owl Magic to anyone it was a fantastic experience!

Wig Wam Bam!!!

Here's another sneak preview!
This time it's of our tee pees, we made the sheets of multi coloured tissue on day 13, they'll be dry and ready to roll around a tripod frame next Tuesday.
These pictures were taken in the art cupboard with an LED light inside the tent, imagine how beautiful a village of tee pees will look! Hopefully next week we'll have a picture of that to show you!

Day 14

This morning we made life size Native American figures, we made a Chief, a medicine man and a squaw!
We worked in quite large groups which ment that we had to work hard to cooperate with each other!
Aren't they FAB!!
This afternoon we had a creative writing session. We worked in groups and created poems inspired by Native American writing.
We used percussion instruments to turn our poems into a chant and performed them!

Day 12

What a busy day we had!

It started with a music and movement group with the fabulous Linda Payne! We alway enjoy Linda's groups and feel really lucky that she comes to work with us! We had a really active session, we worked as part of a group and performed solo! Linda always finishes with time to relax, and usually we need it!!
During the afternoon we contined work on our Native American artwork... we continued painting, we can't wait to see all our individual work combine to make a fantastic group piece!
