Experimenting with Line and Colour

We all had a great time experimenting with line and colour using paint and
a variety of tools!!  First, we painted to a variety of different music clips and
let our hands do what the music told us to!  After that, we used fat and thin
paintbrushes to create circles and patterns on our paper.  We looked at hot
and cold colours and then added detail at the end.  Don't they look great?

The blogmasters

These two handsome dudes are the blogmasters.  We will be posting on this blog about suff we do at school. 😎😎

Famous Five by Enid Blyton

Our class has been reading The Famous Five chapter book during class time.  It is an adventurous book and the characters: Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timmy the dog.  The book takes us to castles, farms, mysterious houses and rock cliffs.  We have been enjoying listening to the story and now lots of us have got Famous Five books to read during SSR time.  Some of us are even writing our own 'Famous Five' stories.

Taking care of our environment

This term Pod 1 has been studying about Marine Reserves and also learning about how to take care of our environment.  We visited Reotahi Marine Reserve where we snorkelled and looked at various marine life.  On our return to school we began to carry out an inquiry of our choice around this theme.  We could work in groups or individually.
One group of year 6 boys decided to produce an iMovie based on caring for our environment.  Please click on the link below to view it.
