Our Art topic this term is ‘Sculpture’ in Year 5/6. We decided to focus on local artwork, and went off to explore Saltwell Park for our resource.
We based our first piece on ‘The Language Stone’, by Gordon Young.
We decided on our own inspirational and motivational quotes, including ‘Welcome’ (inviting everyone to visit us in the North East), ‘Be Yourself’ and ‘You Are Amazing’. Similar to the original artwork, we translated the messages into a range of languages from all around the works and inscribed them onto our own stones.
Which languages can you see on our stones?
