This week the Art department has been busy setting up an Art Exhibit in the school gym. The exhibit showcases artwork from every child in the primary school. The work is based on Winslow Homer’s The Herring Net and has been completed in collaboration with the Art Institute. This picture is of the whole school piece, in which every child painted individual scales to represent The Herring Net.
It has been wonderful to see the primary Art Exhibition in the Gymnasium which is all based on The Herring Net by Winslow Homer. You can hear the music that the students created as you walk around and look at the art work! The challenge is… can you find all the buttons to press so you can listen to all the sound clips?
Year 6 have been having fun developing their investigational, observational and recording skills by carrying out some practical experiments this week. They have really enjoyed designing their own investigations either to find out whether eye color affects their ability to see things or whether stress affects the body. With both investigations the students have been asked to put together their own experimental method with fair testing in mind. They have been asked to record their observations, draw conclusions and evaluate their findings. The students will then feedback their findings next week to the rest of the class.
Omaha! Omaha! This week in PE, the students have been learning how to run different routes in flag football. Later in the lesson they became play-callers by huddling up and choosing a play to run against an opponent.
This week in Dance we read the story of the squiggle. We used a piece of string to imagine all the things that it could be. Nursery created their own dances for the objects that they imagined. Batu created a beanstalk dance.
