dinosaur petting zoo
The Art Club was commissioned by Mr Albanese to do a very special job! We were asked to create an artwork to decorate the 4 cupboard doors behind the principals desk because they were plain and BORING!
Mrs Goulder and Miss Frazer planned a huge artwork made up of smaller pieces of paper, so that each student could create their own section of the picture. Stage 1 used oil pastels to complete an under the sea scene.
Stages 2 and 3 used black and grey materials (charcoal, pastels, pencils, graphite powder, pens, etc) to create a night scene of Sydney with bright New Years Eve fireworks, which covers 2 of the doors.
Stage 1 are working on another mosaic style artwork to finish our design. Can you guess what will be on it?
At whole school assembly we finally got to find out who Barbie is! She is our new life-size, fibreglass cow and some lucky students will be able to help paint her. Each stage is going to design her a costume so she can wear different outfits depending on her mood (like a real Barbie doll!) Stage 1 students decided that we should create a space costume for her so that we can send her to Vinnie as a source of calcium! If you have any great ideas or could help with creating a space suit, please ask a Stage 1 teacher!
Responsible Pet ownership
We had a special visit this week - from a dog! We learnt how to care for our pets, and some students were chosen to role play what we should do if we meet a scared or angry dog. We learnt lots, and some of our best listeners were chosen to pat the dog at the end of the presentation.
book week parade
We had a great book day parade with some fantastic costumes! Take a look at our prize winners!
Every Thursday we take part in special gymnastic classes. Here are some photos of the different activities we enjoy.
We had a FANTASTIC Multicultural Day, learning about traditions, music and dance from India, Germany, China, Japan and Africa. Thank you to everyone who supported this event.
Poem in a pocket
In celebration of Literacy and Numeracy week, students were asked to write and share a poem with other students. We wrote poems about dinosaurs and shared them with Stage 3 classes. Each person who listened to our poem signed the back. We only had to collect 3 signatures but we had so much fun that some of us collected 10!
1 Hangan celebrated NAIDOC week by creating Aboriginal dot paintings. Here are some examples of their work.
Miss Frazer's class also completed some Aboriginal artwork!
To celebrate NAIDOC week, students took part in an Aboriginal workshop. An Elder told us about Aboriginal traditions, music and art. We all got to paint a boomerang and decorate it using traditional patterns.
