This week our bloggers are Ellis and Kimi. Here is their round up of our week.
At the start of the week we combined some of our previous Elements of Art, using colour and shape to make some overlapping artwork.
Our new Element of Art this week was texture. We learned that texture is how something feels or looks like it feels. In little groups we went on a texture hunt, taking pictures of different textures around us before putting them together in presentations on the iPads. We enjoying looking at art work by Vincent Van Gogh and thinking about how he created texture in his paintings. Later in the week we made stamps with lots of different materials and textures and then stamped them on a piece of paper. Once we had tried our own stamps we made some collaborative art works.
For Literacy this week we were inspired by two famous paintings to do some creative writing. We could choose our own style of writing – we wrote comic strips, stories, letters and postcards.
In PE we were doing gymnastics with Miss K and made up routines in little groups. Some of us got gold medal stickers for our routines and some of us got silver. Our dance teacher, Bobby was off this week but we practised our waltz steps. We think we are getting better and look forward to showing Bobby our progress after the holidays.
This week we used our knowledge about Ramadan to make Keynote presentations to share our learning. We also learned about another religious festival that takes place at this time of year, Easter. People shared their Easter traditions such as seeing family, decorating and rolling eggs and of course chocolate!
It’s the holidays now for two weeks, we hope you all enjoy the rest!
