What a great day Narwhals had today! We spent the morning exploring some of the sculptures with a member of the sculpture park team who introduced us to some of the materials the sculptures are made of and the processes the artist would go through in order to create their work. It was great to see how all the artists used materials in different ways and incorporated different ideas into their work. We then had a go at sketching and even used some plasticine to try and create our own animal head which represented us. After lunch, we used some clay to create discs which we made impressions in using various natural items that we found. We also used these materials around us, together with string, clay and pipe cleaners to make our own mini sculptures inspired by our surroundings. After a little more exploring, we got back just before the rain!

Looks like the Narwhals had nearly as much fun as we did? I’m looking forward to seeing your mini sculptures.

What a fad day and brilliant photos. I can’t wait to see their creations on display. Mrs Parker x
