In Maths, we have been looking at different objects in our environment that are symmetrical. We have learnt that the line of symmetry is an imaginary line that passes through the centre of an object or shape, that divides it into identical halves. We used this knowledge, along with some inspiration from our upcoming Perth Zoo excursion, to create some ‘Animal Symmetry’. We drew our chosen animal, then swapped with our partner to draw the other side. We are happy with our own version of the Perth Zoo in our class, until we see the animals in the flesh on our excursion!
Thank you to all of our wonderful Year Three families for donating all of your recyclable materials! We have organised them into plastics, papers and boxes, and have been busy using the materials to create our endangered animal sculptures. Keep an eye out for some updates in the coming weeks, as we make the final touches on our masterpieces, before we enter them into the ‘2019 Rethink Waste Recycled Art Competition’.
Love the Year Three Students
