World book day - Anthony Browne
Posted by Mrs L Trotman
The children started the day with hopping onto the lap tops to research our illustrator. They tracked down the answers to a range of questions finding out that he has written and illustrated 50 books! He grew up in a pub where he loved to tell customers stories and he played rugby at scrum half. We discussed and looked for his motif and themes such as bananas, gorillas and chimpanzees in a plethora of his books. Then in the afternoon session the children applied Anthony's skill of taking something perfectly ordinary and giving it a twist to make the audience look again or look harder. We were able to inject a sense of humor into our self portraits.
