Base 3 had great fun with mackeral last week. Mrs Francis and Miss Phillips swapped classes for a couple of afternoons so that Mrs Francis could get to know the class better and introduce the children to her artistic talents.

They began with looking closely at the mackeral and talking about these beautiful, silvery fish. It was then time to sketch, looking closely at the different parts of their bodies and the the way their scales fit together.

After that the children drew their own pictures. You can see some of them in the photos. Having learned all about the outside of the fish, Mrs Francis opened one up to show children how a fish was filleted. And then it was time to eat 'tinned mackeral'.

Not content with just drawing them, it was time to make 3D mackeral. The children have made the bodies. The fins and tails have been made and are now just waiting to be attached.

Enjoy the photos.
