Dinosaur Dan left his last letter this week – he said his Mummy told him they had to go off to build a new nest to keep them warm over the winter. However, he did leave us some Autumn Challenges.

We did our first challenge today. We had to use Autumn colours to make a painting. Dinosaur Dan suggested that we look at a picture by the artist Kandinsky to help us.

We talked about the colours we see in Autumn and then had to mix paints together to make them.

Next, we used our Autumn colours to paint circles, just like Kandinsky.

They look fantastic in the cloakroom!
