Posts Tagged ‘See You Outside’

The See You Outside project provided opportunities for the young people who participated to directly experience and be inspired by the natural world.

The artwork that resulted was highly varied and exciting, as  you can see from the pictures below:

In an earlier post we mentioned that we found a special fragment of pottery on the site of the old Open Air School in Buck Wood, Thackley, Bradford. The piece was from an old blue and white plate with the sign-language (finger spelling) alphabet running around the edge.

The children from class 2 at Idle Primary School learned about the finger spelling alphabet and each child signed a letter. The letters spelled out a message – “Greetings from Buck Wood Children!” Angie photographed each child’s hand sign and put them together to make a special concertina book.

Here’s a close-up view of two pages, showing letters ‘n’ and ‘g’ from the word ‘greetings’.

Today we had a brilliant morning and afternoon at Idle Primary School, making lots of artwork with the children from Years 1 and 2. There’ll be lots about that soon, and we’ll show you our pictures.

But what’s amazing is that this rabbit is made from blue and white china just like the plates the children from Idle Primary school were drawing last week!
