Visual Arts Week

In Room 3 for visual arts week we looked at the work of Claude Monet. We discovered he lived in France and he painted over 1000 pieces of art. We chose to replicate the painting of "Bridge over a pond of water lilies." Below is our end result.

Claude Monet (1840 - 1926)

                                                  French impressionist 

Bridge over a pond of lilies

Instructions for Room 3's art

1. Make a bridge on your paper using masking tape making sure the little pieces are attached to the long continuous strip

2. Put your finger paint colours onto a paper plate.

3. Using only your fingers use the blue paint for the water and the green paint for the trees making sure to cover the masking tape.

4. After filling your paper mix your paints to make new colours to add flowers to your painting.


Meaning of a New Word

In Room 3 our big book this week was Hullabaloo at the Zoo. Before reading the big book we had a discussion on what the word "Hullabaloo" might mean. Below are the ideas we had before reading the book, these are written in blue marker. After reading the book we all agreed on the same meaning which is written in green. We had lots of fun playing the part of the Zoo animals making a big Hullabaloo!

Describing Super Light Clay

In Room three we have been learning how to describe things. Keira brought in her super light clay and this is how the class chose to describe it.

The clay was squishy and smelly. It was soft but hard to pull. When it was pulled it sounded like the velcro on your shoes. Some of us thought it smelt like chocolate and some of us thought it smelt like a lollipop but Mayshar thought it smelt like earwax. Keira brought in two different clays one was purple and one was green, we used the purple one.

Grumpy Bear

In room 3 we read a book called Grumpy Bear. After reading the book we wanted to know why bears go to sleep for such a long time. We have added this to the story.
We hope you enjoy our take of Grumpy Bear.
