We have been very busy in Year One Blue! These are some of the things we have been up to…
We reflected on Anzac Day while reading the story Anzac Ted. We created our own portrait of Anzac Ted to accompany our ideas about the importance of Anzac Day.
We loved designing and creating our special gift for mum! We thought about the materials we used, the steps we followed and any problems we encountered while creating our picture frame. We each drew a very detailed drawing of our mum to go inside the frame!
We have enjoyed learning about the features of places. We went on a hunt around our school and found examples of natural, constructed and managed features. We decided that some things we found could be classified as all three!
We are enjoying learning about 3D shapes! We challenged ourselves and made models of 3D shapes using matchsticks and mini marshmallows…it was a little tricky and sticky! We had so much self control with those sweet smelling marshmallows!
Washing of the Feet
We have been discussing just how special our bodies are. We have learnt about our senses and loved hearing about each others favourite sounds and smells. We read and illustrated the special story The Washing of the Feet and shared our understanding of how Jesus used his body to show love.
We have been investigating the different types of lines and colours artists use. We made our portfolio cover pages by experimenting with a range of lines and painted using either warm or cools colours.
We can’t wait to show you more of our special work at our very first 3 Way Interview in Week 6!
