What a year!

Our zoo trip. We had so much fun! 


We had an un-beelievable year here in Room 15. Thanks to all the parents and guardians for your support. Have a wonderful summer everyone!

CD printing

Image
Did you know that you can make floral-themed artwork using old CDs? We mixed shades of red and pink and painted these colours onto the CD. We then printed the CD onto our black card. We cut out leaf shapes from card, dipped this in green paint and printed this onto the black card too. We used our fingers and paintbrushes to add stems to our pieces. 










Ramadan

Image
A huge thank you to Nabila and Adiba who prepared an amazing project all about Ramandan this week. We have learnt so much and really enjoyed their presentation. It is so nice to see the similarities between Islam and Christianity. We loved seeing our names being spelt in Arabic and found it fascinating to see books written from right to left. We even tried some dates as the girls taught us that if you are going to break your fast the first thing it should be with is a date. Well done girls!









Drums in the sun

A huge thanks to Catherine for bringing us outside in the sunshine for music this week.




One point perspective art

Image
Here are some samples of our one point perspective landscapes. These were done by creating a vanishing 'dot' in the centre of our pages. From this dot we drew out to divide our A3 pages in quarters. It looked like a big X on our page. In the top quarter we drew our sky/sun/rainbow/clouds, etc. In the left quarter many of us drew trees. In the right quarter most of us drew buildings. The bottom quarter became our road or river. We then painted our pictures the following week. 


April is amazing!

We are really enjoying the month of April. The weather has gotten much better and we even got to eat our lunch as a picnic outside one day:


On the 23rd of April we went to the library for an eco workshop as this week is eco week. We made 'seed bombs'. It was great fun! 



We have also started to go swimming in the community centre.
