Calendar Art

Last week we finished our calendar art.
We drew big Koru, some Maori patterns in the circle, and Matariki stars.
For the background, we did paper weaving.
They look magnificent!
You can order calendar next term online.

Hope you all enjoy a relaxing winter holiday and see you next term Room 21!

Magnetic butterflies

Last week Room 21 decided to a fun art because we love doing art!
We made magnetic butterflies that we can use for notes on fridge.

First we drew patterns on butterfly template, then got a transparent card on top of the paper to trace lines with vivids.
When we finished, we coloured in using colourful vivids and cut them out.
Miss Joo helped us to put magnets on the butterfly.

The next day, our buddies from Room 1 helped putting antennae on our butterflies.

Aren't they look cool?

Arts week

Week 6 was "Arts week" so Room 21 did a variety of art during this week.

First picture is Samoan pattern art that we did last week with Mrs. Baldwin for Samoan language week. We enjoyed drawing different patterns of Samoa.

Second pictures are Giraffe silhouette art we did for Arts week.
Miss Joo read the picture book called "Giraffes can't dance" and we sketched giraffe pattern then coloured it with oil pastels. 
When we finished the pattern background, we cut out giraffe silhouette and glued it in the centre.
It was a hard work colouring the pattern with pastels but we all finished them beautifully!

Next picture is art we call "Crazy hair art" which was a lovely suggestion from Caleb.
Caleb brought the crazy hair art that he did at an afternoon art class and asked Miss Joo if we can do it together as a class, so on Friday, Miss Joo and Caleb showed how to do crazy hair art.
These are our excellent outcome of our crazy hair art. Some of us are still finishing off painting.
Thanks Caleb for suggesting a fantastic art idea!

We all enjoyed creating different kinds of art this week and now our classroom is going to look very colourful with our awesome art so please come in and see them!

Library books

Today Room 21 went to the library to issue new books.
We noticed that many of us couldn't issue a new book today because we forgot to return our old books.

When we came back to the classroom, we discussed that it is important to return books on time.
Please look after our library books and put them in the bookbag as soon as you finish reading them.

Thank you.

Temple visit

On Tuesday, we went to the Buddhist temple in Botany.
We walked on the courtyard of temple which looked like a maze, some of us made wish at the wishing bell, made lotus flower band, learned 3Gs (Good deeds, good words, and good thoughts) and 4Gs (Give convenience, give confidence, give joy, and give hope to others), looked at the giant bell and the drum, and we also went inside the temple too!

Room 21 really enjoyed our new experience and the temple visit!
Miss Joo took so many photos of us and couldn't put all of them on our blog.
Please check out the link below for the photos!
