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.

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!

Room 11 were awesome! They had made autumn trees with paint brushes in Art. In Maths they have been doing multiplication. They have their own place to put their bag and have made a name tag for it.
