Year 5 and 6 Art Week

Oh what a wonderful messy time the children in years 5 and 6 have had this week. They have been constructing models linked to the fairy story, The Tinderbox using Modroc. Ms Moriarty and Ms McNally have been working alongside members of Same Sky (who also organise the children’s parade in the Brighton festival). The children have produced some fantastic models which, when complete will be on display at the Gardner Centre for all to see. Well done Year 5 and Year 6.
