This half term our topic will be Marvellous Malvern. The children will learn more about their wonderful locality and its many interesting landmarks and special features.
Last week in Pine class, we kick-started the topic work by sketching the outline of the hills viewable from the playground. Much care was taken observing the contour of the hills. After finishing the preliminary drawings outside we returned to the classroom to look at paintings of the Malvern Hills, completed by local artists. This helped with the colour choices for wonderful water-colours which were completed on Friday. The children took great care with their application of the paint. A textured appearance for the sky was achieved through the use of paint on bubble wrap.
