Maths & Art Day
We hope the children have filled you in on our fantastic Maths and Art day in school yesterday. We looked at Escher and had a go at tessellation. We also looked at a variety of artists (Gormley, Hepworth, Kandinsky and Jackson Pollock) and produced pieces of Mathematical art inspired by them.
