Dazzle Ships

Last week Year 5 were lucky enough to be invited, by local artist Jaye Ho, to sketch and design our very own Dazzle Ships. Dazzle camouflage was a technique used in World War 1 and 2 to make it harder to determine the speed, heading and target of a ship. Complex patterns of geometric shapes and contrasting colours dazzled and mislead the opposition, hence reducing their accuracy in firing. 

Both Year 5 classes spent time with Jaye, learning about Dazzle camouflage, sketching the boats found on Hastings seafront and then adding our own patterns to create Dazzle Ships.

It was a wonderful opportunity and we all had a fantastic time. We would like to extend our thanks again to Jaye for a marvellous day full of art and history in our local area.
