Isaac, in Year 1, brought in this fascinating and most beautiful dragonfly. We all looked at it extremely closely with a magnifying glass, noticing all the detail such as: the colours and patterns on the body, how many legs, how many wings, the patterns on the wings. The children then drew what they saw and painted their dragonflies using the appropriate colours.
Years 2 and 3
With Years 5 and 6 we looked at the work by Cath Hodsman. She has very detailed paintings of dragonflies on her website. Please see link: Wildlife artist: Cath Hodsman
