This term, our topic is ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ and we are really enjoying reading the book by Roald Dahl.
In Art and Design, we have been learning to draw in the style of the book’s illustrator, Quentin Blake. We looked at the different types of line he used in his drawings - thin/thick, light/dark, straight/curved, jagged and dashed lines. We tried to improve our observational drawing skills. How do you think we did?
In English, we have written our own chants in the style of Roald Dahl. Can you imagine George saying them as he mixed his marvellous medicine mixture?
Even though Grandma has been very mean to George, do you think that George should give his 'medicine' to Grandma? We held a Conscience Alley to help George decide!
We have been very lucky to work with the Roundabout Theatre in Margate. We did a workshop with the director, Stef, of ‘How to Spot an Alien!’ So what do you do if you think your aunt is an alien?
