Harris Burdick Week
There was a mysterious start to term at Southbourne as we began with a whole school topic looking at the 'The Mysteries of Harris Burdick'.
Across the school the children produced amazing writing, artwork and photographs all inspired by the intriguing Chris Van Allsburg book.
Each class had their own picture, with a title and caption, and they had to imagine what might have been going on. This lead to some very creative story writing with some fanstasic descriptions of the characters and the extraordinary events they were involved in.
The children experimented with paints and carcoal to create monochrome pictures in their art lessons and used picmonkey.com to manipulate and edit their photos in ICT.
The week was capped off with an open afternoon on Friday the 17th which was a celebration of the children's work and a great opportunity for parents and teachers to meet.
