Our major project this term was the fabulous artworks for the Writer's Festival. The students created artworks to match their writing piece with each Learning Community using a different medium: PLC - Watered down paint background, Colour Slick (paint sticks) monsters with joggly eyes SLC - Coloured markers and coloured pencils CLC - Dry Pastels YYLC - Water colour paints and water colour pencils
As we come to the end of another term, I am so grateful for the enthusiasm and willingness to learn of the students. This term has been extremely busy and the students have shown great resilience. SLC have been learning about texture. We made bird shaped rubbing blocks using cardboard and the created rubbings with wax crayons. CLC were again dusting off their sewing skills, mastering the whipstitch to make gorgeous little felt creatures.
