Group 2 – Mrs Osmond and Mrs Marshall

We have been reading the book ‘The Queen’s Hat’ by Steve Antony. This book taught us about many of London’s incredible human features such as Big Ben. Did you know that this amazing landmark is 96 metres tall?  We decided to draw Big Ben in different scales.  Inside the classroom, we used various media such as pencils and watermark paints. Then outside, after trying to measure 96 metres, we soon realised we didn’t have enough space! Therefore, each child chose a measurement and counted carefully using a metre stick. Now the fun started….. using one of their smaller sketches for help, they drew an ENORMOUS Big Ben using chalk.
