Landscape Sculptures

Mrs Fowler and I have been hugely impressed by the excellent persuasive letters and articles Owls have been producing this week. We allowed children to choose the issue they wrote about and it’s been fantastic to see how much they clearly care about a wide range of issues, particularly to do with the environment. We have had letters to Mr Woolston, government departments and even the Prime Minister! We also studied the topography of Gloucestershire, noticing how Tewkesbury and Gloucester are particularly vulnerable to flooding. The children created their own sculptures of the landscape in snow, Lego and play dough amongst others. The creativity didn’t stop there with some fantastic art work of local buildings - I was certainly impressed by the ones I saw in school and the home learners’ submissions were of a very high standard too.
