Response to Summer placement

Hello,

I was distracted for a few days by the visit of my father and stepmother, over from America for a few days, and indeed we went to see those amazing Constables in the Tate (among other things)! It really is astonishing how much sky and cloud Constable put into his paintings - at least half the canvas in each landscape picture seemed to by skyscape. But then there's also some Magrittes that have good clouds in them.

Mmmm, I haven't got a Science background either, just a Biology O-level, but I've become more and more interested over the years. I don't see a division between the arts and the sciences, and I think clouds are fabulous for that because you can look at them from from so many different points of view. But I may well take you up on your offer of suggestions for art work, because although I don't mind mucking in, I'm not particularly creative when it comes to having ideas in the first place. And I really don't want to be the kind of teacher who just makes every art lesson an exercise in drawing something on an A4 piece of scrap paper.

I'll be teaching in KS1, but I don't know what year yet.

bw, mimi
