While half the pupils in Year 5 were at the Open Golf Championship or taking part in a cricket match, the other lucky half had a day of art with me!

Pupils made Greek Warrior themed reduction relief prints. They carved their Ancient Greek design into a sheet of polystyrene and printed with their first colour. They then chose shapes from the original printing plate to cut out (reduce) and overlay with a second colour. They then reduced the plate further and printed with a third colour.

This is quite a tricky process, and it was the first time they had explored the technique. The pupils had a great day. It was hard work, but the results are fantastic. Well done Year 5!

All Year 5 pupils will be learning about Ancient Greek battles and warriors before the end of term.
