Investigating charcoal

We had great fun working with charcoal.  We used brushes to smudge it and blend in chalk. We experimented with erasers to make marks in the charcoal and build layers.
The work with charcoal totally absorbed us in our learning as you can see from the photos below.  After half term we are going to be using our new skills to recreate cave paintings for our topic 'The Flintstones'.
