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

glowing green eyes widen...

crafted out of tungsten
battle-worn, combat claws

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