Harvest art with year 1 and 2. Such attention to detail!
Chaffinch Class were investigating sculptures using different materials. They enjoyed constructing scarecrow sculptures.
Goldfinch Class were closely observing plants and flowers before experimenting with oil pastels in bold colour choice. We were thinking about selecting complimentary or contrasting colours. Our results were really impressive.
