Brian Pollard visits Key Stage 1!
We all enjoyed an incredible visit from Brian Pollard this week - It was AMAZING!
He showed us some of his paintings and taught us how to use shape to draw familiar sights. Our paintings will be on display in school just very soon. We heard that many children were so inspired they went home and continued to paint. Thank you Brain Pollard - we just loved it!
