Year 1 recommended reading list

Black History Week

Black History Week 1 Building with Magna-tiles.
Black History Week 2 Paper skylines and captions.
Black History Week 3 Our finished skyline.

For Black History Week, we studied the artist Stephen Wiltshire, who creates amazing drawings of city skylines, entirely from memory.

We created our own skylines, first using paper shapes, then using 3D building blocks.
