In reading today we are going to be thinking about the author and the choice of vocabulary that they use. Remember, an author will always use a specific word choice to convey meaning and help to paint a picture in your mind when you read the book! In today’s lesson, we would like you to read the extract and answer the ‘what does this phrase suggest…’ questions. Think carefully about the word that has been chosen and what picture it paints in your head before answering!

Topic - Art

In topic today we are going to learn about abstract art and more specifically at the artist Juan Miro.

Abstract art is modern art which does not represent images of our everyday world. It has colour, lines and shapes (form), but they are not intended to represent objects or living things. Often the artists were influenced by ideas and philosophies of abstraction. Abstract art is found in painting and in sculpture

However, there are thousands of websites and it can be difficult to know what to trust and which websites are reliable.
