Year 2 . Palm And Apple class. Willow lanterns everywhere!!!!

What a brilliant day! What talented, skilled, creative children we have!!

The children were making willow lanterns today in preparation for the procession on Saturday. They worked in pairs and made a model with straws as a first draft. This highlighted any ideas that needed modifying and gave a clear picture of their designs. They then produced some magnificent shapes from willow. Collaboration was apparent everywhere and the results were stunning. We are looking forward to Thursday when we finish them off with tissue paper. An enormous Thank You to all the adults that came in to help.
