Pig the Pug – Book Week continued

As one of our Book Week activities we read the story, ‘Pig the Pug’.

We created our own pugs with our buddies using coloured squares of paper. It wasn’t as easy as it looks.

We also created our own version of the sequel to the story using Storybird. Check out some of our stories. There are many more to come.

It’s Electrifying – Book Lights!

This term we have been learning all about electrical circuits.

We were each given our own kit. We spent some time in class experimenting with the materials and then took them home to create our own book light. We were given the task to create a book light to link in with this years Book Week theme – Books light up our world.

We look forward to displaying out lights in the Library during Book Week.

Check out our hard work and let us know what you think.

Did you enjoy creating the Book Light? If so, why? Why not?

Human Rights

As part of this term, we took a look at Human Rights. After reading the book ‘We Are All Born Free’ which was written in association with Amnesty International. Our teachers,who went through the trouble of printing out the rights as two books, for each class.

Here are some of the many fabulous drawings that we drew. Proudly presented by both 5/6MA and 5/6WM.

Endangered Animal Habitats

As part of our Integrated Studies we designed and built a habitat for the endangered animal we are researching. We used a variety of materials to produce a diorama. Here is a short video with some photos of us constructing them.

We look forward to sharing the end products with you.

Can you guess which animals might be living in these habitats?

Endangered Animal Art complete

We finally have our canvas painting ready to share at our assembly tomorrow. Mr Willie kindly gave our classes two sheets of plywood to mount our work onto. We hot glue gunned our canvas’ together to create two large artworks.

We are all VERY impressed with the final outcome! See what you think!

Today the class was given the task of enlarging an ANZAC image. Some of them chose to enlarge the image ‘freehand’ and the others chose to use a grid to ensure their image was to scale.
It proved to be a challenging task but the children did a great job!
Miss Moloney and I are very proud of your efforts!
Here is a Slide Show of some of the enlargements. More to come next week!

Did you enjoy the task? Why/Why not?
Did you choose to do it freehand or using a grid? Why? 
If you were asked to do it again would you do it differently?
