During their work on the Industrial Revolution, the children have studied a painting by David Wilkie. They were asked to consider the historical context of the painting and how the subjects may have felt. (It was Queen Victoria's first day in power after her father died)
The children then drew their own image to depict the momentous events.
This half term the children will be decorating their Day Of The Dead masks with a range of patterns and colours that are traditional to the Mexican festival. They will also be researching the meaning behind the patterns and studying a range of designs.
The children have also used oil pastels to create textured leaves for our Autumn display.
