Andy Goldsworthy artwork @ Belton House

As part of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle topic we have looked at the artist Andy Goldsworthy who uses natural reclaimed materials to create 'living sculptures'. The children used Andy's artwork as inspiration to design and then make their own living sculpture in the grounds of Belton House.

Outdoor perimeter challenge!

Children chose a bronze, silver or gold challenge and had to draw shapes with a set perimeter. The children all enjoyed this practical learning experience.
