Year 5 and 6 – Graffiti: Art or Vandalism? – 14.9.17

Today the children of Year 5 and 6 had he opportunity to make their own opinions about graffiti, and whether it is Art or Vandalism.

The children looked at Graffiti in Teignmouth and after a short train journey they compared it to the graffiti in Exeter, primarily around the area of Exe bridges.

There they had chance to discuss the art work they saw and in some cases draw some of their own that they could take back to school.

The trip was a huge success and we saw examples of brilliant art work and some not so good tags. The children will now take these experiences into their literacy lessons helping to inform their balanced argument in their Big Write next week.
