Grade 3 and 4 artists have been learning a variety of paper construction skills over the last few weeks.
This week they designed and created their own original birds. They solved problems as they encountered them by trying different things or asking someone for help.
I am very proud of them and they were proud of themselves. Well done everyone.
Students in the art room began the year by contributing to a whole school art display ‘You be You’. They used paper, pastels or clay to create their own original fish.
After reading the story ‘You be You’ by Linda Kranz students discussed what this would look like, sound like and feel like at school.
They shared some really thoughtful insights.
Be confident enough to be yourself
Stay true to yourself
Be your own best friend
Stand up for things you believe in no matter what others say
Enjoy the things you like doing
Here’s a snapshot of the wonderful, colourful fish they created.
Well done to all the Awesome Artists
Grade Prep students were introduced to American Artist Romero Britto’s bright and colourful Artworks.
They used a Ruler, textas, pencils or pastels to create some beautiful Heart Art.
So proud of these little artists.

Grade Two students should be very proud of themselves, not only did they participate in a Live streamed Art lesson, they then created these amazing artworks at home. So proud of everyone.

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.
Such happy days in the art room. These little artists were challenged while learning paper construction skills. They persisted and helped each other. Such a lot of learning happens when we create. They were so proud of their work and I was so proud of them all. Can’t wait to see what they make next. Yay to being back at school with all our lovely art materials.
Welcome to term 2 – a completely new way of learning from outside the four walls of the school classroom. Today is a ‘settling in’ day like most of us would normally do for a new term. Our parents (who are also our first teachers) may need some guidance during the day as many of them have not been to primary school since the dinosaurs roamed the Earth (well maybe not that long).
Today, here is a simple activity for all parents to try to do sometime during today’s day of learning. I would like parents to take a picture of their child/ren completing some of their learning. It may be of them working at a desk, practising some meditation skills, watching a video that their teacher has shared with them or having a brain break doing one of Mrs. Harrison’s fantastic PE exercises.
I then would like parents to send this photo to their class teacher as a quick way of touching base with them. Class teachers may not necessarily reply to these emails as they will be teaching throughout the day but it is a nice way to show them that your child is engaged in our home learning program. I would love to put some of these photos onto the school blog as well so if you give permission for me to post a photo of your child/ren please CC me in on the email to the class teacher. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Please also note that the Prep to Year 2 online program will begin after the students have made their way through the pack that was provided at the end of last term.
Below is a list of all teaching staff’s email addresses for your reference.
Cheers and have a great day with your beautiful families.
The excitement in the art room is building as the show looms nearer.
Two wonderful collaborative works are the beautiful interactive wings and the thumbprint turtle stool. Here’s a sneak peak at some of the work done so far towards these pieces.
Each student decorated a feather and these have been joined together to create two wings. Students will be able to stand between the wings and take a photo.
Today the art leaders coordinated each student in the school adding their thumbprint onto a piece of material we will use to create a cushion for the amazing Turtle stool Mr. Downey and Zander Downey built. Can’t wait to put it all together.
See you on Tuesday night at the Art Show 😁
The Grade 3/4 Special Artists have been super busy in the art room creating some amazing animal skin paper . We are planning to use these in an awesome sign for the art show. There’ll be snakeskin, tiger, zebra, leopard and even eagle and peacock feathered paper. It’s a challenging task and I’m so proud of them.
