We designed and created a printing block today that allowed us to practise some relief printing in Y2 👍🏻😀
We are really looking forward to continuing our art projects next week!
Today we continued our silhouette art work with Mrs Robbins. We have been adding patterns and geometric shapes to our silhouettes, I wonder what we will add next…
We got involved in a whole-school project and made some 3D hand shapes today, using our clay modelling skills. We had to think about the thickness of our clay, keeping it flat and even.

Today we created our bird designs for an upcoming local display. The children thought carefully about their use of colour and showed some excellent colouring skills!
