Fabric Sails

During our Spring 1 Art lessons, we explored the shapes of different boat sails, before designing our own, thinking carefully about the patterns and colours we wanted to include.

Once we had finished this, we measured and cut a piece of wooden doweling (using a saw) to attach our sail to. We then used string and hot glue to create our rafts before attaching our masts. Below are our finished rafts:

Harvest Art

For the Harvest Assembly, we created pieces of artwork, focusing on the fruits and vegetables that are usually found around harvest time.
