The Year 1 Artists, have been learning about primary and secondary colours. They made fantastic colour wheels, showing that:
Red + Blue = Purple
Yellow+ Blue = green
Red + Yellow = orange
They also looked at Kandinsky's: Squares with Concentric circles.
They practised painting their own circles using different sized brushes and by mixing paint to get different colours.
Year 2 have been learning the story of Creation. We have explored what God created on each day and even told the story by creating a soundscape. We wrote about what we are thankful for God creating.
In Year 3 the children are lucky enough to have a designated chess lesson! It is a great game for helping concentration and problem solving.
Today was their first lesson and they played a Pawn Game to help them understand how the pawn moves on a chess board.
It was great fun!
Today in Year 3 we had to vote in representatives for our Student Council.
Those children who wanted the role wrote a speech and spoke to the whole class (very brave!) about the the qualities of a great student councillor . They also gave some ideas about the kind of things that they would help to change.
