Base 4 worked with Mrs Cador in their art and literacy lessons last week to explore The Great Wave off Kanagawa by the Japanese artist Hokusai and to learn about his life. 'The Great Wave' is the print that inspired the front cover of Base 4's new class story, Kensuke's Kingdom.

The children chose part of the print to interpret using a small window frame. They then experimented with a range of media to reproduce the image: sketching pencils, graphite, water-colour, oil pastel, chalk pastel, acrylic paint, collage or a combination.

You can see how successful the children were in recreating the print or parts of it in the photos.

My goodness — we couldn't be more proud of Max and Harley; they have been the most wonderful news readers! The children all cheered and thanked the boys for their interesting and engaging assemblies, speaking of their favourite memories which included: women's football, the red moon, solar eclipses and cricket! Max and Harley, thank you so much — you will be greatly missed but I know...
