Scarecows and Leaves in Seniors!


As the environment around our school is filled with beautiful Autumn colours, Senior Infants set about re-creating Autumn in the classroom. First of all, they designed and constructed scarecrows and after that they took their inspiration from autumn leaves to create their own leaves with card and oil pastels using a technique called sgraffito. They were more than pleased with their efforts!
