P6 watercolours

Today the P6s learned some basic watercolour techniques: how to do a flat wash, a gradual wash and a wet-on-wet painting.  These techniques required precision and speed.  Most of the boys and girls were quite pleased with their results.

Please ensure that children are sensibly dressed for damp, muddy conditions.

If you can be a parent helper for the morning (9.30-12.30) please let me know as soon as possible!
