I really enjoyed our water topic last term as gave us the privilege to go on amazing educational visits like the aquarium in the Horniman museum. I enjoyed the sketching of the fish because it required loads of concentration and we were all silent. Almost! we used 2B, HB and 4B pencils. 2B pencils are softer than HB but they are harder than 4B. we went around the aquarium a couple of times, sketching a fish every so often.
We have been doing a river study, where we chose a famous river we wanted to learn about (there were a few choices) and had to find out the key facts about it. We didn’t finish because I think this project will be going on for quite a long time. The river I chose to do was the Amazon river in Brazil, and I wanted to do that river as I have read a book called Journey to the River sea (a name that the Amazon river is also called) and that book was very interesting, so that was my influence for choosing the Amazon river. I look forward to the rest of this project!
