Matisse and other Super Heroes

This term in English we are exploring fantasy stories and have begun by thinking about Superheroes. We started by listing all the superheroes we know and now have explored the term further and decided that there may be super heroes closer to home too.

Ellen said “Super heroes are people who help others when they are in trouble”

I hope you have enjoyed the flip books we made earlier this week.

We have also started to look at Matisse who may be thought of as a hero of a different kind because he didn’t give up when he found painting became too difficult as he got older , he instead changed his style and started a new revolution in ‘Paper Cutting’. We thought this was a good example of perseverance.

Here are our versions of one of his paintings , first we drew them and then we used Matisse technique of paper cutting.

What do you think ?
