Last week we had an exciting assembly where we found out that we have our own Shaun the sheep model! When we first saw Shaun he was completely white. The next day we all went into the library to watch Mrs Hopkinson- Hassell paint Shaun. She used to work for Aardman Animation and knew exactly what he should look like. She was painting his face and his legs. She explained how she was using acrylic paint to give him a smooth, glossy finish. She told us how she was using a range of coarse brushes for the base and fine brushes to add detail.
We have decided that Shaun will be our Maths sheep! Over the next few weeks we will help to decorate him with numbers, maths symbols and number problems! We are calling this project ‘Counting Sheep!’
