Dinosaur Dan left us his last letter this week. He told us it was getting a bit cold for him because it was Autumn, and he wanted to go back to Dinosaur Land.
He did, however, leave us some envelopes with Autumn Challenges in them, which we will be opening and completing over the next few weeks.
Our first envelope asked us if we knew about Autumn colours. We decided that Autumn colours would be the colours we might see on the leaves at this time of year. The challenge also asked us to make a painting like Wassily Kandinsky’s, using Autumn colours!
We found out that Wassily Kandinsky was a Russian artist who painted a picture with lots of circles. We used Autumn colours to make paintings just like his. They look beautiful on our classroom wall. Make sure you look out for them at Parents’ Night!
