This week in art we explored the artist Romero Britto. Romero Britto is a Brazilian artist who uses lots of different elements of art including pop art, and graffiti painting in his work, using vibrant colours and bold patterns. We explored different types of lines and then had to draw the letter of our first name in pencil. Once we had outlines it we made some sections in it. After that we used patterns and lines to decorate the inside of our letter. After this part we drew some more lines and patterns to create the background. Once they are finished, you will be able to see our artwork displayed in our classroom 🙂
Here are some progress pictures.
We hope you had a wonderful holiday 🙂

We started the week by exploring Persuasive texts. We know that persuasive texts must try and convince someone by giving good reasons. We read ‘Hey Little Ant’ and then wrote a persuasive text on why we shouldn’t step on ants.
In Religion we are exploring nature. We went on a hunt around the oval to find some things in nature. We found things like grass, leaves, spiders, webs, clouds and rocks.
We also started handwriting. In our books we have to carefully trace the letters to form them correctly.
We also enjoy using the space in our classroom. Some children get to sit on he floor using the floor desks.
This week we have been very busy in Two Blue!
On Monday when we came to school we had lots of stationery to sort out. After sorting it all out we had Music and Japanese. This week we also had Sport, Health and Science.

This term we have been exploring how to write procedures. For a procedure to be most effective we learnt we need to list the goal, materials, steps in order and complete a test. We wrote procedures on how to make a Vegemite sandwich. From this investigation we learnt that the steps need to be very specific otherwise your sandwich won’t look like a real sandwich (just like this picture). For this procedure the steps were simple like ‘put the butter on the bread’ and ‘put the Vegemite on the bread’.After some discussion ,we reevaluated the steps and made them more specific so we could make a proper Vegemite sandwich following precise steps.These steps were written like this ‘using your knife, place it in the butter and scrape some on the knife and spread it on the piece of bread.
