B Cador: March 2018
It's wonderful to see the work of children with a talent inspired by their learning. Base 4 are reading the novel 'Mortal Engines' by Philip Reeve this term. Today, they have been writing descriptions of different parts of the Stalker a character in the novel.
Here are some of them:
gnarled remains of oil-filled wires
oil oozing out of every square inch of his body
glowing green eyes widen...

The children went on to draw their own illustration of the Stalker. Here is Matthew F's interpretation. Enjoy his illustrations.
