29.06.23. Today we enjoyed using lots of different materials to weave our fish.

22.06.23. In creative Thursday we read the book The Great Wave a book inspired by the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai. In the book a boy rides on the back of the Japanese fish and in Japan on the 5th May they celebrate the festival of "Koi Nobori" (carp streamers) We were inspired by this and drew koi carp which we then printed. We also made some very colourful streamers.
