Last week on Wednesday, 2nd class listened to Ashley Spires talk about her book ‘The Most Magnificent Thing’. She spoke about where her ideas came from and about the process of creating a book from start to finish. She loves cats and dogs and she includes them in her books as different characters. She spoke about how she made loads of mistakes and learned from them. Also she told 2nd class that practice makes perfect when you are drawing.

Welcome back 2nd Class

On Monday the 1st of March, 2nd class took part in the South East Engineering Festival and had great fun with Shanda McCloskey talking about Engineering, creativity & problem-solving. She spoke about how she created her books ‘T-Bone the Drone’ and Doll-E 1.0’. She also showed us how to draw T-Bone the Drone. She challenged us to design our own drones. We really enjoyed our talk from Shanda.
