You are invited to visit the Curious Cabinet. The cabinet has been delivered to your school for your inspection, deliberation, fascination and to make you curious too.
Go and examine the weird and wonderful objects within, consider the things that might live there, look for ways in, look for ways out, look for any magic you might be the only one to see. Use your wildest imagination.
Then, shut your eyes and invent what you would like to be there…
Write to me, describing what you are thinking of…
Is it a creature? Is it a place? Is it an adventure?
Please tell me what only YOU know about what there may be in my cabinet.
Roll up your paper, tie it carefully, and deliver it to the cabinet to inspire someone else another day.
With my thanks for your help,
The Keeper of the Cabinet Continue reading

The children talked about the reasons why the Aztecs made art and decorative objects and how they used human and natural forms as symbols to represent ideas about religion and war.
We then spent a while looking at Aztec motifs practising the drawing style and allowing the children to try out symbols of their own.
These were used as the centre piece of some impressive Aztec shields. For decoration we thought about the Aztec craft of feather work and looked at images of Montezuma II’s headdress made from the feathers of more than 250 Quetzal birds. The children learnt their own craft of paper feather making and added these to their shields.
