Year 4 - to create their dragon eyes, Year 4 used pencil lines initially then a range of watercolours, ink and pastels to add textures and tones. They look great and will help them with their creative writing in English next week.

Year 5 started on creating Greek vessels using paper mache to sculpt them. They attached card to the balloon using masking tape to create the neck and base and used wallpaper paste and newspaper to do their first layers.
