3T thinks about illustrating!
We have learnt lots of different things about illustrators! In Molly and the night monster there is only one colour. This is because it's at night time and blue shows us the feeling of being frightened. In The way back home, Little boat and Harris finds his feet there is a double page with a small picture in the corner which shows the character to be alone. we've looked at placing pictures on a page, like in Molly and the night monster when the charcters are on one side of the book behind the door. We have made our own books in the style of Thomas Docherty all about a character being able to achieve any challenge! We are also creating our own scenes based on hope, kindness, helpfulness, love and freedom and taking photographs with a light on the main subject.

3T shadows a martian
We are shadowing the Kate Greenaway awards in class. We have looked at our favourite pages in The way back home. We wrote a book review in partners about this book and its illustrations. We learnt a new word 'synergy', which means how the picture matches the writing on the page. Some of us also learnt the word 'martian'. We think Jeffers used this word becuse it's more WOW than alien and makes us think of different styles of space creatures.
