Artists and Beasts!
This term we have learnt four different European artists: Matisse, Van Gogh, Miro and Klee. We looked carefully at the style and the types of media they used and then created our own artwork in the same style. We have some fantastic collages, self-portraits and paintings decorating our classroom now.
We all enjoyed reading and writing about The Lonely Beast. We had some pretty scary looking beasts in our class during our acting sessions!
We have been learning how to solve addition and subraction calculations using the column method. We are all aiming to be brilliant mathematicians by the end of this year!
What else has happened this term?
As usual during Term 1, we held a class election to vote for the children who would be our School Council members for the year. The children gave wonderful reasons why they would make great school councillors and I am pleased to say that Aysha, Jan and Harrison will be the councillors for Owl class this year.
We enjoyed our Harvest Assembly and learning about how the food we donated will be helping feed homeless people through the Caring Hands Charity. Thanks to our generous parents who contributed so much and to our lovely cook, Donna, who made a wonderful harvest loaf.
