What a truly awesome Space game that Aurora and her sister have been busy creating over the last couple of weeks.  I love the fact that Aurora has decorated it in a Pop Art style.  This is what her dad wrote:    ‘Within the past two weeks, Aurora and Raffaella have transformed an old ‘Hotel Chocolat’ gift box from Christmas into a fun marble-balancing game called ‘Shooting Stars’…The aim is to get your marble from the starting position to the bottom corner having passed your marble through the tunnels.  The girls chose the space theme for the game and worked really well together to create the game and the rules!’  You have done a remarkable job girls and I hope you are very proud of the end result….all I want to know is… who won the first game?

Oh my goodness…this Pop Art picture by Olivia is absolutely awesome!  This is what her mum wrote… ‘Olivia decided to colour in multiple astronauts that she printed off, and selected bright colours to make it pop art. Olivia also enjoyed adapting an autographed NASA astronauts photo that he dad had and putting filters on the photo’s in powerpoint to try and create a pop art look.’ How fabulous Olivia that you have really thought about this project and then created this ‘work of art.  Very well done and thank you so much for sharing this with us.
