POP ART!

Today we started our new art topic on Pop Art.  We learnt about the history of the movement and viewed various examples from Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.  Students had the challenge of designing their own work using words like POP, BANG, OOPS, ZAP, WOW and POW.  Have a look at some of the completed examples.

Sausage Sizzle

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

To use up the stock purchased for the Fish Farm fundraiser, we will be holding a Sausage Sizzle at Recess on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week unless otherwise sold out.

Sausage on bread will be $1.50 each for purchase by students with payment by cash only.  They will be available from the area near the table tennis table.

Solids, Liquids and Gas

In science this afternoon we explored the differences between solids, liquids and gases by making Oobleck.  Students explored

a. What qualities does Oobleck have that suggests that it is a solid?

b. What qualities does Oobleck have that suggests it could be a liquid?

c. What do you think it is, a solid or a liquid or both?

d. What are the two main differences between a solid and a liquid?

 

 

Augmented Reality Meets Art

 

Today we combined augmented reality and art! 5/6 HM and AE coloured their own designs and explored the app “Quiver” on the iPad.  This  brought our unique colouring creations to life in extraordinary 3D augmented reality.

 

 

 

 

Assembly

A large portion of this week’s learning has been dedicated to assembly preparation. Every student was an active participant in planning the script, dances, animations, green screen, volunteering to speak, taking photos, preparing videos, the list could go on.

We are so proud of every student for their participation in assembly today. Thanks to the family and friends who attended. It is a wonderful way to show your child you care and value what they are doing at school.

 

We have had a wonderful start to the year and the three teachers are very excited for the year ahead!
