Year 1: Sunflowers - part 1
In preparation for our annual Art Exhibition, the whole school is looking at tints, tones and shades. Year 1 have been concentrating on the yellow/orange area of the colour wheel and Miss Milton-Thompson's class have just started their sunflower paintings in the style of Georgia O'Keeffe.

Here are some of the paintings so far. We plan to finish them in next week's lesson.
