This week 2JP have been focusing on Remembrance Day. This obviously fits in well with our Heroes topic so we have spent a lot of time discussing why we have Remembrance Day and the significance of the poppy.

Van Gogh's Field of Poppies
We looked very carefully at this painting by Vincent Van Gogh and then have worked over two days to create our own versions of his painting. Firstly we painted our backgrounds using paintbrushes to create blocks of colour showing sky and fields. We left these to dry and then the next day we added the detail of poppies, trees and clouds using finger painting techniques as we decided that was how it looked like Van Gogh had created his painting. I'm sure you'll agree our finished products are amazing!
