On two wintry days in February the children from Pocklington Junior School came to Uncleby.
On Thursday,Farmer Mike and Mrs Wray met Miss Ridlington’s class at the Robert Fuller gallery. Everyone enjoyed looking around the gallery ( many thanks to Robert and Victoria once again). Robert showed the children some of the paintings that are not yet finished as well as answering any questions… He also showed them a weasel run that he has made and will hopefully be on the BBC One Show… Keep a look out for that!
When the children got back to Uncleby they spent the rest of the morning sketching animals. We think there are some budding artists!
On the Friday, Cath Inglis came to Uncleby once again. As always she was an inspiration to the children. The boys and girls watched Cath and listened carefully to her ‘tips’. Some children volunteered to help her finish the painting.
The children then did their own landscape sketches. Some looked through the window, and drew what they could see.
After lunch on both days the children went on a walk to Manor Farm dale. Farmers Mike & Geoff told them about the animals that they saw and answered any questions that the children had.
