We started the week with some short videos introducing Leonardo, and watched a documentary about some of his inventions.
We explored Leonardo's paintings, and changes in the Renaissance, in a number of books, before the children did a colour-by-number version of the Mona Lisa, and a portrait of each other in oil paints.

The children also tried their hand at building a self-supporting bridge with lolly sticks, although despite their best efforts, they needed help with da Vinci's solution in the end.
