Create a Comic Strip

Here's a great competition to create your own comic. Little LICAF Live would like youngsters to design a factual comic! Inspired by Steve McGarry, it could be about anyone, from any walk of life. An athlete, a musician, actors from your favourite show, a family member, a historical figure or group of people like the Vikings! Think about what you have recently been studying in school to help you with ideas.
• Create a biographic comic. It can be any size, landscape or portrait, but we recommend no larger than A3.
• Use a combination of images and words – you can search ‘comic template’ online if you would like a ready made layout.
• You can use any materials and equipment you want; draw, paint, collage, hand write, type, computer aided.
• Hand your comic to your teacher before the deadline 25th September – please only write your first name on the front.

You can read all about it and see some examples by opening the document below. I look forward to seeing your creations.

Time Capsule

We are living through historic days and we should definitely record this time for posterity. Many of us won’t appreciate the sheer magnitude of what we are experiencing now so note it all in a time capsule to store away and open in years to come. Imagine the memories! Click on the picture below to take you to details of how to make a corona virus time capsule.

Journal newspaper in box with feather and shells lying on top of headline about school closure during Coronavirus Covid-19



In this lesson we will learn about French artist Henri Matisse and create a collage inspired by his work.


In today's lesson, some very sad news will be shared as part of a topic that will need the support of a parent or carer. We will use the event to then look at how to cope with such sad news.
