Garden to Table

Room 5 and our buddy class Room 7 got to experience the benefits to growing your own food.

Our lettuces were looking luscious and ready to eat so we all bought our marmite sandwiches to school and slapped on a bit of high quality produce. I think by all the smiles you can see that the Lettuce was a winner on the day.

Did you like our lettuce? Describe what the lettuce tasted like in the comment section...

Art in progress

We are using the pastel techniques we have learnt to draw our buddies portrait! What do you like most about pastel art and using the techniques?








Room 5's Art Project has started... watch this space!

Room 5 has been loving our swimming lessons in the pool this term so we have decided to base our art around swimming. We are using the artist called Warren Visceo. Warren creates sculptures that resemble people in different positions wearing towels.  Check out this photo... it is inspiring us to create our own pieces of pastel art:


We have started off our learning by making observations and learning about different pastel techniques. Watch this video to learn more:
