Mrs Royston placed some attractive pictures of flowers at the easel for the children to gain inspiration from. We talked about the differences in colour and the type of flowers they were. This did work, as we had some fabulous representations made, looking just like those in the pictures.
Perhaps we will add some other items so there can be more wonderful artwork created.
