In our Art lesson this week, we studied images of different species of butterfly, looking closely at the intricate patterns and marking on their wings, before having a go at creating a careful pencil sketch. We looked at six different species, including the rare Adonis Blue and Duke of Burgundy, which are both to be found on Rodborough Common. We folded our drawing paper in half, to help to keep our butterfly sketches symmetrical. We coloured our sketches using paint and pencil colours, matching the colours of the butterfly species as closely as possible. Our finished pictures were then cut out, and given antennae made from modelling wire. These butterflies will go on to our display board in class, alongside printed PowerPoint slides with facts about butterflies, which Ospreys have been creating in Computing lessons. Come in and see our colourful butterfly display!
