Take One Picture (Art Gallery)
After finding out a bit about the Queen and her life, we learnt about the importance of different crowns and how the crowns have changed over centuries. We used St. Edward’s Crown as the basis for an investigation into the different parts of the crown.
We enjoyed creating papier mâché gems. First, we covered plastic bowls with layers of papier mâché. We had to wait for each layer to dry before we could add another. Once the layers were all dry then we had to choose a colour of the gem to match the jewels on St. Edward’s Crown.
We covered the sides of the crown with gold paper. We glued our jewels onto the sides of the crown. We tried to match our jewels with the real jewels. Finally, we created the orb and cross using a beach ball, bamboo sticks and wire.
