Swallows were inspired by his art, and decided to create their own version of his work.  The results are stunning!

To Infinity.... and Beyond!!


We have had a great week discussing our topic - Space.


We were interested to know how far away from the sun the planets are, so we went outside armed with toilet rolls and chalk to recreate the solar system on the playground.


We were all very surprised to see how far away the planets are, particularly the gas giants.
