Year 4 learnt about the art of Collage, how it means more than just sticking down pieces of paper and how it has been used in different ways since early in the 20th century. Linking to the work on Carmen, the class considered how Carmen felt when Don Jose ignored her and how this contrasted to her later feelings for Escamillo. These different moods were recreated through the use of contrasting colours and textures as a basis for an image of Carmen.
