Room 3 has been working very hard to finish their sea dioramas and they are also learning about all the zones of the sea and where all the fish go. They did very well doing the ombre effect fading blue to black. They worked in groups of 3 and did amazingly! Room 3 colored in all of the pretty fish with so many different colors. They did the midnight zone and some fish were so beautiful! All of their work was amazing. Well done Room 3 your efforts were ecstatic!

Rooms 1 and 2 have been working like pros in their art and crafts. We thought their drawings of themselves on the first day of school were beautiful. When we went to check them out we saw they were doing art based on the letter A. Then the teacher showed us that the kids had been working on their art with fingerprints. We thought Rooms 1 and 2 have been focused and awesome kids!

Room 6 have been working very hard on their Art in the past few weeks. Their Diwali art is very cool and they have taken their time colouring and decorating. It seems like they had a lot of fun! They did some beautiful cow and Santa hats that were amazing too! Some children wrote letters to Santa writing what they would like for Christmas. We took our time to admire their beautiful work.

Room 21 made their own Diwali art. They drew an intricate pattern and repeated it to make it symmetrical. Then they coloured them with bright colours to present light over darkness, which is what Diwali celebrates.
Room 24 made these wonderful lanterns by using an outline and colouring in bright colours.
Rooms 1-13 made these art with coloured sand or rice. They used red, blue, green, and yellow. They also made their own art but using an outline.

Rooms 12&13 made some houses out of card and sand. They also made little pet rocks with little farm animal faces. Room 14 made gumboots with paper flowers glued to them.
Rooms 21&22 made balloon animals. This is how they made them:
1. They blew up balloons and tied them shut.
2. Then they got this special glue and newspaper and stuck the newspaper on the balloons and did about 5-6 layers and when they dried, they added one layer of white paper.
3. They painted their balloons the colour of their animals.
4. Once that dried they got their accessories and glued or hot glued them one. And there you have your animals!
