Year 4 chose England as their Commonwealth country. We picked the North West artist L.S.Lowry and made matchstalk men, women, children, cats and dogs.
Year 4 have moved on with their Gaudi topic. The children have made animal collages using his Trencadis technique.

We have chosen 3 objects from home to create a still life picture to reflect us as individuals.
We have enjoyed looking and learning about the french artist Henri Matisse. We have copied his style and explored making our own collages and a group collage.
