 Art like Andy Goldsworthy

Wheal Busy had a fantastic morning of outdoor learning. These photos show the result of the children trying to produce art like Andy Goldsworthy (Google him!) Callum lead his group to create his vision and they were very proud of themselves. Another group showed their topic learning (without being told!) and made a digestive system which really show them applying what they have learned this term

Outdoor Learning

Yesterday, Wheal Busy had a fantastic morning of outdoor learning. These photos show children completely engrossed in observational drawing. As well as art skills, this activity encourages children to slow down, be mindful and take notice of the world around them.
