JUNIOR AND SENIOR TEAM NEWS.
On Wednesday students from the Junior and Senior teams got together to share some Literacy activities.
Senior students read their STAR OF THE WEEK books which were written about them by their peers, during a weekly writing session in Terms 1 & 2. Junior students then read an individual book from their classroom and all children then recited or read the poem that they are going to perform at the Eisteddfod in Term 3. It was an enjoyable session for all
The students in Year 2/3 recently investigated the Dutch post impressionist - Vincent van Gogh. He was famous for his bold, dramatic brushstrokes which often added a feeling of movement to his works. Students re-created one of his most famous paintings - 'The Starry Night' and used thick layers of paint to gain the desired effect. Their hard work and concentration was rewarded with some fabulous creations, which are currently on display outside of the school library.
The final fortnight of term has seen students researching the artist and inventor - Leonardo da Vinci. They have discovered that Leonardo created some of the most famous artworks in history and was also a prolific inventor - especially in the field of aviation. The students recently followed in Leonardo's footsteps and used a part of his parachute design to create their own parachutes. They were very successful in their designs (which included an element of origami) and all parachutes safely floated to the ground
