Louise Pasquill began the term looking at Picasso with our youngest art club members in Reception and Year 1. Picasso has an exhibition at Tate Modern at the moment and famously said

They went on to look at the story ‘The Pencil and talked about favourite colours and words associated with them – peaceful, calm, strong, gentle, masculine and feminine.
