Languages Online

This term students have been using the Languages Online program to better their Japanese skills in an engaging way. Foundation and Grade 1/2 students in particular have been using the program. Foundation have been using the numbers section and now are working on animals. Whereas Grade 1/2 have been focusing their learning on classroom instructions and now items in their school bag.

Grade 3/4 Aboriginal style Art inspired by Bronwyn Bancroft’s illustrations

IMG_5842 We are learning to illustrate using aboriginal dot and line techniques. Illustrating requires us to where two hats- an artist and a story-teller.

The students are thinking about: WHO- characters, WHAT- the action and WHERE- the setting as they create an art work about a part of the story “The Eagle Inside” by Jack Manning Bancroft.IMG_5839

We are learning to layer dots and revising colour theory to add emphasis to certain parts eg. painting a warm colour dot on top of a cool colour dot.
