We’ll done everyone! 🙂
So you’re probably wondering what I mean by painting the wall, well you’re about to find out.
10 students in the 5/6 area were chosen to go to the construction site of the Monash Children’s Hospital to paint the barriers around it. First, we had to come up with a pencil design. Angelina had a lot to do with this part.
Next we did a chalk copy on brown paper to work on our colours.
Finally the day came and we arrived at 8:15am at the Berwick train station. It wasn’t a very long ride, which was good.
When we got to the hospital, we had a look around. The boards were white so there was no need for a background to be painted We started off with a pencil drawing, and then filled it in with paint. Lots of other schools did very colourful designs, but I really liked ours.
We had our big wishing pot, out of it came big bubbles, and inside were paintings of what the children may want and wish for in hospital. Such as, going to the park or beach.
Everyone from our school was really good at painting.
When we were nearly finished, the newspaper photographer came along to take some pictures for the paper.
We were even lucky enough to get an interview with one of the lady’s organising the event.
Overall, I know that everyone had an amazing day. And the best part is, when the construction is finished, our painting will be kept in the hospital.
The prep grades have read this book Baby Bedtime. For book week, they chose this book to do an activity. They made a cool collage elephant, using materials such as hessian, buttons, pom poms and more.
After working really hard, grade six have finally finished their pots! These will look fantastic in the Community Garden!! 🙂
The grade 3’s were inspired by the book, ‘Kissed by the Moon’ to make a cool paper plate creation. When you spin the plate, you will see paintings of different seasons of the year.
As you can see, most of the grade sixes have finished painting their pots. This week, they will be glazing the pots, and then putting them in the kilm to finish off.
The book, ‘I’m a Dirty Dinosaur’, has inspired our preppies to do an amazing piece of art to look like a muddy swamp where a dinosaur loves to get dirty!
Kaaviyan and Samudra produced some amazing ark work to enter in a Cultural Diversity competition. Sadly they weren’t selected as finalists, but they did receive a very colourful participation award. Congratulations!
Last week the grade sixes finished off their mechanical eyes. These were inspired by the book week winner , Rules of Summer by Shaun Tan
This week the grade sixs will be painting their humorous pinch pots.
