sketching en plein air

Armed with sketchbooks and pencils the y2's (6/7 yr olds) ventured into town today. We looked carefully at buildings in the old parts of town and tried our best to sketch what we saw. I've included a photo of what they were actually looking at and what they drew in response. Some of them really surprised me with the level of detail that they managed to capture.

Whilst back at school the bigger children got around to painting their papier mache ships. Next week we attach sails (the children decided that they wanted to make them out of fabric, like real sails) and rigging.

Brilliant to see some good old fashioned observational work and didn't they do well!
