Emma crawling by Velvet

I drew this by looking at a photo on Mummy's canmra. I was pleased that her head and her ear was good. Isn't she sweet?

Izzy's Turtle

Isabelle drew this about a month ago. I was really impressed with the shape, she did the basic outline in about 2 minutes and then it just evolved. Sadly William added some of his own style to the picture!

Flying Fairy in My Garden by Velvet


I couldn't wait to make this after I had listened to Pomegranite Sarah explain how she started collage as a little girl, with snippets of wrapping paper and nail varnish. I used wrapping paper, paints and the real gold leaf, given to me by Grandad who has kept it for 40years, it was given to him by a friend he worked with in the printing press where he worked as a proof reader. I wanted it to look like the magic that was coming out of the fairy's wand.  Posted by Picasa

Prized Possessions by Jake

I am running with the idea that art does not have to be paint and paper Sharon. This is the sort of shared moment I love with Jake. He quietly shows me his handful of beautiful marbles I just had to snap a photo and capture the moment I love this image. Call it performance. Posted by Picasa

Jake doing Mathematics!

This was created by Jake after a Numeracy Lesson in which he understood matching colours and counting them! I love this one.

Welcome - My action from tonight's meeting...

Thought I strike while the iron was we have it, a swift action to my idea to set up a Junior SG5 Blog. I notice Karen has just posted her factoid just now too, so I am not alone in being sad and Blogging at this hour. Here we have it. A Blog for the little people in our lives. It will give them a purpose, let them share their art and with feedback they will gain confidence.
