The time has finally come! The children in Year 5 were ready to dye their batik style art work! The children used wax crayons to create a resistant layer, which would stop the dye permeating the fabric, before carefully applying dye to make beautiful patterns on their art work. As we have studied rivers so far this year, inspiration was taken from across the curriculum, with children recreating aerial views of rivers, as well as V shaped valleys, waterfalls and even some oxbow lakes!
It was very fiddly, and there was a lot of cleaning up required after, but the children were so proud of their creations, and the staff were very impressed at how sensibly everyone worked – well done Year 5!
