Our Discovery Time continues to be very popular in class. Today we finished off our salt dough sculptures with a couple of layers of gloss enamel to bring out the colour and seal the paint.
I think they look fabulous.
They are very creative.
Luc, Conor and Jack worked together preparing a Viking Longboat after researching about the Vikings.
Mrs Pritchard came through for a look and commented about how more developed our paintings are now than when we started.
Summer put her sky on her shoebox rocky shore diorama. It looked very realistic.
Sharon made a beautiful card using the craft material and the rub off lettering sheets.
Sean was very intent and determined to solve the problem of how to get the robotics kit to do what he wanted. We used a printed sheet from Mr Winter- a teacher in Hamilton that we has Skype screen shared with last week. He is giving us tips to help us.
Georgia used the instructions on the origami website from last week to teach herself how to do some origami.
Tommy and Sam looked through the Discovery magazines to do a some research on Sir Winston Churchill so they could complete a project on him in next week's Discovery Time.
I bought my marbling kit to school. We talked about the oil spill in America and how the oil floats on the water. We dropped coloured oil on the water, made it into swirls with a matchstick and dropped paper on it to soak it up.
Everyone was in awe of the beauty of the marbling colours. Next week we can use the marbling paper to cover our spelling notebooks.
I loved the kind and supportive way that Nathaniel showed Tarn how to do the marbling as Tarn had been away at his guitar lesson when I had showed the rest of the class what to do. He would be a great teacher when he grows up because he explained it very well.
