We have started the new year looking at Ancient Greece. We have learnt the story Pandora's box and Icarus and Daedalus.
In art and DT we have been looking at Greek patterns found on pots and have created our own patterns using collage and then today we have mastered block printing with acrylic paint and polystyrene tiles.
We have looked at Greek Gods and what they are the God of. We then created charcoal pictures of the Gods.
