INTERNATIONAL DOT DAY
In September the children joined hundreds of thousands all over the world to celebrate International Dot Day. This annual event was inspired by the book entitled The Dot by Peter H Reynolds. The book tells the story of a child who is reluctant to draw and who is encouraged to have a go by starting with just a dot on a page. The story goes on to show how the child's mark making develops from just one dot into some great masterpieces.
Here are some of the masterpieces created by the children for Dot Day this year.
