Quite some time ago now I took another Art session with Year 4. This time the theme was Stonehenge and its mysterious use.
We looked at light and dark, shadows and how they create atmosphere and, finally, Stonehenge itself as both an historic place and a series of shapes.
We communally drew the example – I wielded the charcoal and chalk, the children gave the instruction and then they got on with their own.
I was very impressed with the outcomes and they now adorn the classroom walls, mounted individually on black, not far from the cave painting.
