Lesson 4 - Art

For Art this week, you are going to explore the work of the famous artist, Pablo Picasso. There is a video clip to watch which talks about his life and work. There is also a PowerPoint which shows you what a self-portrait in the style of Picasso looks like and how you can create one for yourself. Your task will be to create your own self-portrait in the style of Picasso! You may want to use a mirror to help you or a photograph of yourself or you could always take a photo on a tablet/ device. Good Luck! I look forward to seeing your creations.  

Story Time - Beetle Boy

After an artistic afternoon, sit back and enjoy chapter 7 of 'Beetle Boy'.
