Having ensured that we were familiar with our immediate ‘inside-the-school-grounds’ surroundings, we decided to take a closer look at what we could see as we looked outwards from within the boundary. A sunny Thursday saw us head outside across the football field and towards the fence, clipboards tucked safely under arms. Our task? To sketch some of the things that we could see; some of the things to be found in our local area.
The grass was suitably dry after a good few days without rain, so it was OK to sit as we worked…..
with clipboards balanced on knees.
So, what can we see? Turn to the left…..
execute a hasty but artistic scribble and…..
there it is, recorded.
Change the focus a bit; look more closely…..
and you might even spot a real live orange growing on a tree in a pot.
Take a bit of time so that you get it just so.
Why not make a few more…..
And now, what next? Next, we will take a closer look at the view from the outside. Let’s get out and about in our local area.
