Fairy tales

We are a pretty arty bunch in Ngakaunui and enjoy being creative. For the last two weeks in literacy we have been looking at Fairy tales. Miss Johnstone was extremely surprised that we hadn't heard of a lot of them so we spent some time reading and finding out what our favourite one was. In groups, we rewrote a fairy tale, changed parts to make improvements, and illustrated our pages. We are now in the process of turning these pages into a book. we have retold Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Puss in Boots, The Ugly Duckling and more!

We have loved retelling these stories and reading fairy tales so much that we decided to create some fairytale artworks. These were originally supposed to be based off our favourite fairytale characters but we got a bit carried away and as soon as we mentioned Harry Potter Miss Johnstone said we could choose any book characters as well!

We found an image of the character that we wanted to turn ourselves into, and then Miss Johnstone took photos of us posing like them. The photos were printed off and we used pastel to completely colour over it and turn ourselves into the characters. They look pretty amazing and Mr Wilkinson is even going to put a display up in his office.

    These are by far some of the coolest artworks I have seen in a very long time. I love being able to see them on our wall every day. You are a creative bunch. Keep on creating!!
