Autumn Leaves

After collecting a lot of leaves in the park last week, Year 4 used oil pastels to draw them in school. I’m sure you’ll agree that the finished results are excellent! We talked about colour, shading, scale and trying to focus on the small details. We are looking forward to you seeing them on our wall really soon.
