During our staff retreat we were reminded by Joel McKerrow through the use of the picture storybook Sky Colour (written by Peter H Reynolds) to keep our hearts open and look beyond the expected and then creative inspiration will come.
After reading the picture storybook Sky Colour and discussing this theme the students realised that sometimes they need to stop and look at the things around them differently. We also discussed the importance of letting our imagination see, rather than just our eyes.
The children spent time wondering why the sky can be multi coloured and why does this happen in the morning or at night and not in the middle of the day.
The children then let their imaginations create their interpretation of ‘Sky Colour’. They mixed watercolours together to create a sky colour that was unique.
