In English, we looked at the story of King Midas (which ties nicely to our Ancient Greece topic) then the children planned out and wrote their own story based in the same manner. I look forward to reading these over next week!
This past Wednesday we were lucky enough to have two artists visit Year 4. They showed us some strategies and techniques to try when using paint and pastels. The finished products look pretty good. I'll try to get some pictures next week to post up!

Have a great weekend everyone.
