On Friday, year 6 researched sculptures by the artist Andy Goldsworthy . 

One fact we found particularly interesting about Goldsworthy was a few years ago, over the winter months in Scotland, Goldsworthy assembled 13 enormous one-ton snowballs and placed them in cold storage. One summer night, he released them onto the streets of London's financial district. Londoners awoke to startling winter sculptures on their sunny sidewalks. The snowballs were filled with a variety of elements, from feathers, seeds, and pinecones to rusted metal. The element of surprise continued as the warm summer air melted the sculptures and slowly revealed their insides to the passing public.

We then went on the field and created our own sculptures from natural objects-have a look!
