Remembrance Day Poppies Outdoor Art Display

We created a whole school art display to celebrate Remembrance Day and brighten up the exterior of our school. Every child in school created their own poppy using a range of media and techniques.  The Nursery children made collage poppies using assorted paper and pva glue, they also experienced print making for the first time using sponges and paint.  Our Reception Class developed their print making skills using potatoes and paint, Year One used finger prints to decorate their poppies, Year Two used coloured pencils to shade and Year Three experimented with oil pastels.  Year Four designed their poppies with crayons and year 5 and 6 used coloured pencils.  Some fabulous and totally unique artwork to brighten up our new exterior fencing and of course lift our community spirits during these uncertain times.  A big thank you and well done to everybody involved!
