Art Incursion

Year 1 and Year 2 students enjoyed a Zart Art Incursion. The students used silk and calico to make sunprints. They used colour dye to create vibrant patterns. Water spray and salt were used to create special effects. Each student made their own calico print as well as working on a whole class print.

Will – I liked putting the salt and water to create the special effects.

Asha – I enjoyed painting on the materials.

Xavier – I have learnt how the masking tape can hide the colours.

Cameron – I learnt that if you mix the primary colours you will get the secondary colours.

  

 

What did you like best about the art incursion?

Exposition Writing

The Year 1 and Year 2 students have been learning how to write an exposition. They have been trying to persuade the audience by using ‘strong’ and ‘powerful’ language.

The students have also been giving a short talk to the class to see if they can convince their audience about a change they would like in their classroom.

Do you find these arguments convincing?

Twilight Sports

November the 8th.
The Level 1/ 2 students had a blast at the Twilight Sports. Running, hitting, running, jumping and even more running. Everyone collected a ribbon or two and were in high spirits. Team spirits were high, enthusiasm and encouragement featured as teams worked hard to score points. What a great night!

Working in 1/2 BA

This week we have been playing a board game all about facts and opinions. We then made an ipad with some apps to show we know the difference between a fact and an opinion.

This week we also played a Kahootz…all about the people in our class. It was fun and Mason came first.

Italian day

Today the Year 1 and Year 2 students enjoyed Italian day. Students dressed up and showed off their creations during the parade.

During a multi age session the students listened to the senior students share some poems. We also enjoyed the STEM activity where we built our versions of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Waiter Races and the fabulous Magic Show with Luigi.

We are looking forward to pizza and watching the show.
