St Martin's Garden Primary School

Little Boats and Big Monsters
In the last session before the half term break we read "The Little Boat" and made our own sea picture, complete with boats, mermaids and sea monsters. The library is looking great now with all the new artwork on the walls. Two new groups of shadowers will meet after the holidays - we're looking forward to looking at Dave McKean's work in the first week back. Find our video of this artwork here:

Monster Pictures
This week one of the groups read "Molly and the Night Monster" and created their own monster files - some scary, some friendly. The second group looked at another of Oliver Jeffer's books - "Catch Me a Star" and made their own starry decorations.

Book Group Stars!
This week one group read "The Way Back Home" and made a wonderful starry picture to brighten up the library. A video of this artwork can be found here: The other group read "Harris Finds his Feet" and then made postcards for Harris to send back to his grandpa, telling him about all the wonderful places he'd been on his travels.

Getting Ready!
Our groups will meet for the first time this Thursday. We are going to be looking at Oliver Jeffer's "The Way Back Home" and Catherine Rayner's "Harris Finds his Feet". We'll be making our own pictures to hang on the wall over our display of the Greenaway shortlist books.
