Fantasy plant and flower workshop at Revoe Learning Academy year 4

DSCF7212

On Friday afternoon we worked with year 4.

Each pupil picked out an unusually named plant or flower from the ‘mystery bag’ and then drew a design of how they thought the plant might look. We invited the young people to research the origins of the plants and to look up how the plant really looked, after they had created these amazing fantasy plants using recycled materials.

These are just a small sample of all the plants created.

This project is supported by the local community and funded by LeftCoast as part of their ‘Growing People’ initiative in Blackpool
