This week , I would like you to look into French art. A bit of fun! It is called Impressionism, a very famous painter called Monet who was part of that group of artists, the impressionists. Have a look at the website and try to create a piece of art. You might even be able to save it and share it with the rest of the class when you come back. If not , try to learn as much as you can about it and enjoy exploring the Tate gallery website for children.

Bonne Chance! (Good luck!)
Keep safe and well.
