Year 5 have been learning about World War I and what life was like on the front line and in the trenches.

Jacqueline Hurley is an artist who has created a War Poppy Collection.  Jacqueline paints in both expressionism and impressionism styles. Her original works are painted in acrylic, using texture to create mood and depth, with red remembrance poppies against gritty impressionistic landscapes. Her paintings feature silhouettes which help her audience connect with the works in a more personal, emotional and sentimental way; encouraging the people she paints for to relate to the subjective nature of the paintings. More can be found out about her work here.
