The Foundation students have begun a new unit of work this term in PA.
They will be working on the unit of Dance and Music. The music unit will be specifically focusing on singing.
They have been having lots of fun taking part in some dance activities using props such as Scarves.
I love these photos I snapped of some of the perps dancing with the scarves. They are moving so fast the photos are almost blurry.
I have been working on a project for the school Greenteam. After meeting with Leigh the Greenteam Teacher we decided we wanted some small works or art for the veggie patch. We wanted something that would last in the weather and look funky and smart. Our plan was to create a Scarecrow Family. So…… two scarechooks, one Scarelady and a Scareman. This is stage one complete. Now to let the kids decorate them!
The year 3/4 students have been using the mediums of collage and paint to finish off their Still Life Rule of Thirds Drawings. I can’t wait to see them finished. They look fantastic so far and the collage tiling is very effective on the painted background.
As the year 3/4 students have been learning about rules in the classroom, we have also been focusing on rules in art. We looked at The Rule of Thirds and how artists use composition to create works of art. We spoke about using scale, balance and proportion (focusing on the art principles and elements) and looked at a range of still life works of art. Our focus artists was Vincent Van Gogh and his sunflower paintings. We spoke about how some of the flowers are on different angles and some cut off the page.
Students then had a go at drawing their own Still Life using a template of The Rule of Thirds. This helped them to think about size, scale and composition.
They are still working of their final pieces.
Here are the lucky students with their found Canvases from today’s trail.
It was another lucky day for the year 3/4 students finding all five canvases. As I was busy teaching today I was lucky enough to be assisted by some of the past Canvas Trail hunters who hid this weeks canvases for me.
Here is a close up of each canvas and a little bit of information about the artist?
Rasta is a graffiti artist who works with a range of mediums from paint pens and texts to spray cans to pencils. Thanks Rasta!
Another canvas by Rasta!
Millie is a six year old artist who wanted to join in the trail and create her own work of art! Thanks Millie.
This fantastic canvas was created by artist Amon Brock. Amon is the son of our super star 5/6 teacher Ant! Thanks so much Amon.
This canvas was created by 3/4 student Aaliyah. A fantastic canvas. Well done.
Another great Canvas Trail. Thanks to all who joined the hunt. Better luck next week to everyone who is searching. And may the odds be ever in your favour.
