Year 5 Storybites was based on the book The Tale of Angelino Brown by David Almond. They were asked to think about the events at the end of the story, when the characters celebrate life creatively. Each child was challenged to make a mini piece of artwork to display in a model classroom. Just like the characters in the book, they had to use art materials that made them happy. The children loved experimenting with different resources although the challenge to keep everything miniature was frustrating at times!
At the end of the day, each model classroom was full of a variety of mini sketches, clay models, paintings, collages and sculptures that represented aspects of the book e.g. Angelino’s wings and a fountain of custard.
Each class designed and created a new classroom for Angelino’s school.
