Today we started to learn how to use our water colour paints. On the Endeavour this was how Joseph Banks and others on board the ship recorded what the expedition saw. No cameras in those days!

Lost and Found

We had such a creative week. The art and writing based on Oliver Jeffers book is great. Come into class and see what we have done :)
Fact filled penguins are nearly up as well.
