During today's skills day, Y5 have explored their journeys theme further. After looking at other works of art on a journeys theme, the children sketched the ideas that resonated with them. Using shading and cross hatching to help create tone and textures, they gathered ideas of symbols and images that they could put on a clay tile to represent their own view of what a journey means. This afternoon, after planning their designs, we practised the carving and shaping techniques using clay that we will need to create our finished journey tiles in the next couple of weeks.
