We looked at various pieces of art created by Kandinsky. We talked about how the pieces made us feel and what we could see in the pictures. We then produced a piece of art inspired by Kandinsky's artwork.
On the day before the Halloween break, we dressed up. Here we are with some of our Halloween art. We created skeletons using various pasta shapes and we also made some witches.
One day, we completed a flower hunt. We had to find the flowers in the pictures in our wild flower garden. We also explored the vegetables that were growing in the school garden. We even found a few caterpillars!
Our class, came up with other ways to say 'said'. Look at how many we came up with!
We used a pencil to discover our dominant eye. We also discovered our blind spot using a simple card with a cross and dot on it.
We wrote acrostic name poems about our interests and personalities. We are all similar and different in so many ways. We are certainly unique!
We designed postcards by drawing a picture. Then we wrote postcards to our family and friends and addressed them.
At the start of this school year, we visited to our school garden to see all the flowers, vegetables and fruits that we planted before the summer. We also did a flower hunt and in pairs, we tried to locate the flowers that were in the pictures. We were great detectives. We also got to bring home some of the vegetables. Thank you to our gardeners.
Ms Druhan showed us two eggs and told us that one was raw and one was cooked. We had to figure out which was which. We named the eggs Al and Bertie! We felt them at first but we couldn't figure it out. We decided to put them in water to see if they would float or sink. The first container was too small so we got a bigger one. They both sank! We thought about the insides of the eggs. The raw one was liquid inside and the cooked one was solid inside. If you shake something solid, it stops moving when you stop shaking it. However, if you shake something liquid the liquid keeps moving when you stop shaking. We decided to spin the eggs. When we spun the eggs and stopped them, one of the eggs kept moving and the other egg stopped. We discovered that Al was raw and Bertie was cooked. We cracked Al into a container to check if we were right. We were correct!
Then Ms Druhan asked us to try and make the egg stand. We were not allowed to hold it! We eventually decided to use salt. We poured out a mound of salt and placed Bertie in the salt. He stood up! Gradually we blew away some of the salt. Bertie managed to stay standing with just a few grains of salt holding him up. It was amazing!
