Children’s Art week 2019

 

The theme for this year’s Art week was: The Natural World – Connecting with nature, to encourage children to get creative and active, improving their health and well-being, whilst having fun.

 

Children were encouraged to create and share a piece of natural artwork. Each year group had a land art focus or artist to use as inspiration:
