Thomas Muir

 P7 learned about Thomas Muir and his journey to Australia.  We learned about the hostility he was met with on arrival and about the local wildlife. The Australian Aborigines painted beautiful art work in caves and on trees and we took inspiration from this and did some of our own. We used the technique ‘pointillism’ and used cotton buds to make small dots. We also used contrasting colours.
