Being an illustrator

It’s been a busy week for Owls with the Literature Festival, harvest festival and forest school in amongst all of our other activities. In the Literature Festival we saw Steven Butler and Steven Lenton, the author and illustrator of the ‘Nothing to see Here Hotel’ series. They talked to the children about developing interesting characters and we had a go at illustrating one of the characters. Parents may have noticed some of Owls coming home heavily armed but beautifully decorated on Wednesday after our forest school session, where they made Stone Age jewellery out of natural resources and bows and arrows to defend our settlements (children were given clear instructions on keeping themselves and others safe with the bows and arrows!)
Elsewhere, the children did a great job in performing their poem ‘Conkers’ in the Harvest Festival assembly and discussed strategies to persuade in English (watch out parents - Owls are honing their powers of persuasion before Christmas!)
