On Friday, the students from years 5, 6 and 7 who were not participating in Cross Country spent the day with Mrs Pratt. They worked on some Maths and Writing before finishing the day with a serious bout of Art.

They studied the style of Dean Russo, a contemporary American painter. They then chose a black and white drawing of an animal, which they carefully filled in with blended watercolours. A background was painted, also in watercolour, and the outline of the animal was enhanced with the addition of some white paint. Before gluing their animal onto the background, the students added detail using paint pens.

Here are some of their masterpieces:
