This week, Lobsters have been working really hard in their Art lessons. They have been practising sketching and painting Mr and Mrs Twit in the style of Quentin Blake.

Take a look at our final Mr Twit illustrations:

Terrible Twits

Over the last couple of weeks, Lobsters have been getting creative and practising their art skills.

First we practised different sketching skills. Then, we used those skills to sketch in the style of Quentin Blake. We had 3 attempts at copying one of his illustrations. Each time, we had to think about what we wanted to improve.


Next we practised using water colours. We learned different stroke techniques, how to make secondary colours and how to create different tones of colours.

We have now started to sketch and watercolour or pictures of Mr and Mrs Twit and look forward to sharing them next week!

Terrible Twits!

This week, Lobsters were visited by Mr Twit! He told the class all about the disgusting pranks he plays on Mrs Twit and he gave us a secret mission to create a prank for him to pull on Mrs Twit. He also set us the tasks of creating a revolting beard and turning ourselves into Twits!

The children were really engaged and are excited to start their new Art and Design and Technology topic, Terrible Twits!
