This week our Animal Art Club has been based on the theme of frogs. I have received some fantastic Bridget-Riley style frog pictures, a few fabulous Rainbow Frog stories (that you can download, they’re definitely worth a read), and some amazing fictional texts on various species of frog. As well as fantastic frogs, I’ve also received some super photos of Daniel’s incredible Dinosaur Museum, along with some examples of Year 5 artwork based on the work of graffiti artist Keith Haring. Cherie and Jacob have both had great fun with their rockets and we have also received some Andy Warhol and Andy Goldsworthy inspired art.
Jay’s rare powers and life
Once up on a time lived a little green frog named Jay, he was only one day old. His whole family were rainbow coloured. Jay and his family lived in a wet and warm rainforest with plants and animals everywhere. He didn’t have his rainbow colour yet because they only turn rainbow at one week old. Six days later… at this time Jay was getting desperate. Then his mother said, “Today is the day that you learn your magic and turn rainbow,” as they hopped over to the transforming tree. First Jay had to jump into the Colour Lake but only half of him turned rainbow. So, his mother hurried him off to the other more powerful lake called Double Colour Lake luckily the rest of Jays body turned rainbow. The next thing to do was to learn his powers (they usually have two.) He seemed to have the two rarest powers of all, to turn invisible and to shoot real rainbows. Jays rainbows made people and animals smile and be happy and the invisibility power is so he can hide from threats. He soon moved out of his home and got a nice wife named Rosa and a new home. Not soon after they had twins one boy and one girl. They were called Lily and Pete, Jay (their dad) taught them everything he knew including how to use their powers. Their powers were both the same, controlling things with their eyes (common) and to move water and air (rare). They lived happily ever after just the four of them.

Once upon a time lived a tiny frog called Opal. Opal was white all over, her family said when she was five years old, she would get her powers and would turn rainbow coloured. One sunny day a herd of elephants separated her from her family. Once they had gone past, she searched for her family everywhere. She found an old village with people walking around. Suddenly she saw a rainbow come out of the sky. Opal saw the end of the rainbow and went into it. Just then she turned rainbow coloured! While she was looking at her skin a little girl walked past with a cut on her leg, Opal looked at it and it healed. She had healing powers. The next day her family came into the village. She went home with them and was very happy.
