Leaf Art

The children in Year 3 and Year 4 have had a fantastic afternoon enjoying working in our beautiful school grounds. They collected leaves, flowers and feathers in many shapes and colours, and used them to make detailed pictures of different animals, flowers and nature scenes. They produced some truly amazing works of art!

Here are some photos
