Our Printmaking is complete.

We drew our cats on cardboard. We added whiskers. We cut out the shape, chose our paint colours, and used the print rollers to create one off pieces of art. They will be on display in the hall later this week. Please come and view our work. We hope you will purchase them as they are really wonderful examples of 5 year old creativity. We hope you also enjoy this short slideshow of some of the prints.

Cats, cats, cats...

Ten chicks arrived today.

George has ten chicks that hatched in an incubator. They came to school today. We all asked George and his Mum questions about them. We found out that their mother didn't miss the eggs as she just kept on laying more! At the moment they are living in a box in the laundry. They are quite noisy so they will be moved into the garage. When they are bigger the girls(hens) will lay eggs too. The boys (roosters) will go into the pot to be cooked.

So cute don't you think. We wrote stories about them.

We have been experimenting with printmaking. We rubbed crayons on a variety of surfaces. This was great fun.

These cool frogs were made with potato prints.
Now we are getting ready for the Art Exhibition and sale of our prints.
Take a look at this! Can you guess what we might be doing with these cardboard cats?

A clue! We will use the print rollers!
Please come and view our work on October 2nd.

Zee Bong the Storyteller.

Today we were entertained by Zee Bong the travelling storyteller.

His quilt held fascinating stories in the designs. When we chose a design Zee Bong told it's story and we got to act in the story.

Sasha was a bull with horns!
Jackson was a fierce tiger!
Charlie was a Grandad who baked delicious cakes in a castle.
