Art Class Outside!

4th class took their Art lesson outside last week, focusing on shading and shadows. The children explored Herbert Park and captured an image using their Ipad. They practiced taking photos from different angles and compared and contrasted the pictures. Once the children completed their picture they then went on a hunt to find materials in the environment to frame their pictures!

 

Lava Lamps with 2nd Class!

2nd class combined science (materials and change) and literacy (explanation writing) last week to make some very impressive lava lamps. You can watch their lovely lamps here.

The students were able to use their predicting and investigating skills as well as explaining how the experiment worked. 

There was a lot of excitement and amazement in the air. 

Well done 2nd Class!
