What an amazing start to the new term. The children have been busy this week learning all about The Lowry. They have learnt how to draw Lowry Landscapes and Industrial Landscapes. After learning the techniques, we invited the parents to come and see how the children were progressing and some of them joined in. Parent feedback was all positive and the children felt proud that their parents could see what they were doing in school.
Below are some pictures of the event.
