This week, to celebrate World Book Day, Barkis Class went to the National Portrait Gallery to meet the writer-illustrator team Knife and Packer. The children had the exciting opportunity to create characters with the authors, and all draw their own cartoon version of them. We then went into the gallery, where the children created their own illustrated heroes and wicked villains in response to the gallery portraits. If you’re enjoying these fantastic illustrations at home, your child could write a story featuring their characters!
Don’t forget that we will be welcoming two more author/illustrators to Charles Dickens Primary next Wednesday when we celebrate World Book Day in school ( 9th March).
