Learning in Spring

Year 4 learnt about the work of famous artists including L.S. Lowry where they studied, copied and recreated some of his techniques.
In Year 5, during Book Week, we read Sharing a Shell by Julia Donaldson. In art, we recreated a scene from the book using mixed media. We used paper, card, shells, tissue paper, pens, paint, crayons and pencils to create different parts of the scene.
