For  our World War 2 Learning Adventure, we have been studying the work of British artist Henry Moore. We analysed and emulated his drawings, leading to the creation of sculptures that aimed to express the emotions of Blitz victims. This has linked closely with our WW2 diary work in English where we have been using ‘show not tell’ devices such as, ‘She held her head in her hands’ to describe  emotion. How would you describe the emotions expressed in these sculptures?
