'THE MIXED-UP CHAMELEON" By Eric Carle

Zentangle is a fun way to create amazing patterns by drawing lines or shapes. This type of art fits perfectly with our Algebra learning. This was our first time and we’ve done a wonderful job.  

 We used colour to create stunning chameleon’s based on Eric Carle’s book.

SELF ASSESSING AGAINST THE MATRIX!

Today we were writing descriptions.  We had to self assess them against a Matrix to see how good we are. Here is a photo of the girls checking where their writing fits.



WILDFLOWERS

Mrs Kenyon worked with a group of children today to make their "Wildflowers".
 
We used orange, yellow and red crayons to brighten up the background.

  
The children picked yellow, orange or red dye for their background.

Then we used our fingertips to paint the flowers.
  
  

BASKETBALL

We had another session of basketball with Miles today.  We were fabulous at dribbling, throwing and catching the ball and have nearly perfected our 'Jump Stop".
