Medallions in Year 6

This half term we have been looking at the artwork of the Anglo-Saxons. Using the story of Beowulf as our inspiration we explored patterns prominent in Anglo-Saxon metal work to design and craft our own medallions. 

The children worked hard to think about the textures and lines they would need to mark their clay with to create their images. 

The children then used metal paints to show how they would have crafted the different metals to make their medallions.
