During my week at Carlton J&I we wanted to create items to sell and decorate the stall at the schools summer fete; we also want to make a large 2D elm tree to reflect the schools logo. The overarching theme for the work as well as including the school emblem was local nature particularly as Frickley Park is nearby and has a strong connection with the school.
We used rich vibrant colours of plants, trees and flowers and looked a the work of Angie Lewin for inspiration. We also collected leaves and practiced some drawing from observation.
We made screen printed bunting with year 3, lino and relief printed greetings cards and postcards with year 4. Year 5/6 made two giant elm trees from screen printed fabric and year 6 screen printed tote bags and tea towels featuring the elm tree and school moto.
The school are certainly well prepared for a stall bursting at the seams with handprinted treats!
