Year 3/4: Egyptian Portraits

The Year 3/4s are studying Ancient Egypt and in the first few art lessons, the children will be painting Egyptian portraits.

They were very proud of their drawings.

There was some amazing artwork in all three classes. The Year 3/4s really rose to this difficult challenge and  I could not be prouder of them:


The finished artwork can be seen in a later post.
