Our first thoughts
This is our blog for 2016 - regardless of the date showing! In the first session we just looked at the covers - from this we decided that our favourite book was Something about a Bear and the book that we liked the least was Once Upon and Alphabet.

We liked both bear books and drew our own pictures in the styles of Jackie Morris and Ross Collins. At first we thought that the Jackie Morris book was fiction but we realised that it was non-fiction when we read it. Altho9ugh we loved the illustrations most of us preferred the facts a the back of the book as they were more detailed.

Writing our own story
We told our own story for Footpath Flowers and invented names for the characters. We then all wrote a piece of the story and placed the words in amongst the illustrations.

Artist session
Today we worked in the art gallery with artist Jo Blaker. We looked at how the different artists make their styles and we did paintings in the style of Oliver Jeffers, Jon Klassen and Ross Colliins

Penultimate session
Today we voted twice - once for our own personal favourites and once for the book we thought the judges would choose. We had 3 books with the same number of votes for our personal choice but we thought the judges would choose Sam and Dave Dig a Hole. We'll have to wait and see!
