Topic Art
Last week we began our study of LS Lowry. Click on the link to The Lowry again and look at his work. Then watch the different versions of 'On the Sands', below this box. Use these as inspiration to complete your task sheet. You are to begin just with pencil drawings and once you've made notes on the similarities and differences between them do your own. (See task sheet). You can even do a bigger version if you like!

Research suggestions for your learning challenge - look at the 'Spring 1 Homework' page on the Y5 menu - this has lots of information, resources and fascinating websites to help you.

This task will take 2 days - you need to have 5-6 paragraphs of well developed sentences.
