Maths in Art

Maths in Art

The Grade 5 and 6 students worked hard at the end of term to complete an artwork using folded paper. The art elements they had to consider were colour, value, line, shape, harmony and balance. They learnt three origami folds, the hat fold, the kite fold and the Samurai fold to create an artwork that showed Radial Symmetry. Here are some of their fantastic artworks.

Online Assemblies

Online Assemblies

This term we have been doing online assemblies because of COVID-19. Each fortnight Mr Downie records the assembly in his office and then places this onto the school blog for all to see.

Lately, The School Captains (Aiden,  Sienna, Joshua and Jessica) have helped with online assemblies by reading out some of the student of the week awards which we have enjoyed doing.

Today’s online assembly is scheduled to take place at 2.30 pm on the school blog.

Minecraft Club for the Students in Years 2 and 3!

Minecraft Club for the Students in Years 2 and 3!

The Grade 6 Digitech leaders leaders have some exciting news for students in Year 2 and 3.

We will be helping to run a Minecraft Club for students in Grade 2s and 3s (who haven’t participated before). We have been working hard in lunchtime sessions to help set things up and I am sure the students who participate in these sessions will learn lots of new skills as well as having a lot of fun.

Information for our new Minecraft club will be sent out in a letter shortly after the holidays.

We had a great week in Garden Club.

Thank goodness Mrs Clarke came to help because we had a lot of children come.

Thank you children for being involved in our growing of flowers, fruits & vegetables.

We planted potatoes and flowers in the wheelbarrow.

We picked two buckets of mandarins and the last of the cauliflowers.

Amazing Designers and Creators

Amazing Designers and Creators

This week in the art room we went back in time and worked on practising the paper folding skills we had begun before COVD19.
The aim was to use these skills to  design and created a 3D bird using 2D paper. The brief was to create a bird that could stand, sit or be hung.

I am so proud of the way they approached design problems and persisted to create these awesome birds. They were very proud of themselves too.
