We spent a couple of extended art sessions developing our knowledge of polar regions as a setting. We watched some clips from the Disney film 'Frozen' as well as explored the painting 'The Magpie' by Monet. The children's finished pieces were photographed and sent to St. Thomas' - our federated school who were supposed to pick a winner. However, they thought our artwork was so brilliant that they couldn't choose so the children were all winners!
In these sessions the children got to explore some new media - chalk and charcoal. They loved creating these setting pictures - they especially loved trying to say 'the Aurora Borealis'!
