Wildlife Explorations - Amazing Animals - Fin

Friday was my last input on the 'Amazing Animals' project at Birkby Junior School in Huddersfield. The morning was focused on working with groups of pupils across year one (I worked briefly with around 50 children) using iPads and the Brushes app to embellish and develop images which were created originally in pen and wash. The afternoon saw the construction of the final images on large boards in the Hall and outside the Year 1 classrooms. This was an ambitious and enjoyable project, where 5 and 6 year old pupils created a sustained body of work based on initial drawing experiments and observed drawings, which were then developed into individual pieces and finally a collective large scale work.
