Into the woods

Into the woods we go!

As part of our topic this half term, ‘Into the Woods’, the whole of year 3 visited the local woodland in search of natural resources, for our Andy Goldsworthy inspired art, and of course to find the Minpins! We all had a fun filled morning, searching high and low for anything we could find to make our artwork amazing. Once we returned to school, having managed to scale all the hills back, we spent the afternoon channelling our inner Andy Goldsworthy, creating fantastic and imaginative pieces of art.  Every piece produced was unique and detailed, with the whole class surprising me with their creativity. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and to cap it off, we found the Minpin tree and caught glimpses of the Minpins themselves!
