African Arts Week

This week we have been celebrating the continent of Africa for our Arts week based upon the Zulu Nation warriors. The children have looked where in the world Africa is and undertaken a range of activities designed by our very own Arts Council.

In class four the children worked in the media of clay to create a 3D sculpture disc inspired by the pattern featured on the Zulu warrior shields. The pupils first flattened the clay, curved the edges and then scratched their design into the surface of the clay. The results were amazing and the pupils thoroughly enjoyed making them!
