WORLD WAR One Centenary Commemoration
We have been discussing the centenary of the end of World War One in our Topic lessons. We have talked about why poppies are used as a symbol of remembrance and have used a variety of art techniques to create poppies for our display.

We also created wire sculpture poppies based on the work of artists, Alexander Calder and Georgia O’Keefe:
We have really challenged ourselves to create woven poppies. Take a look at some of the finished results below:
Take a look at the portraits that we have created using soft pencils.
