Watercolour Calendars

This week we have been using watercolours to make a calendar. We’ve tried to show the change in seasons throughout the year from the perspective of one tree. I am incredibly proud of the children, who have shown great skill and a keen eye for design during this task. I’m sure you will agree that the finished products look amazing.
