This term our Science focus has been on learning about the ‘stars’. At the start of the term when asked what they knew about the stars, this is what some of the children had to say:
Riley said They are where the moon it.
Daksh said They are round.
Reid and Kaley said “They are yellow.
Piper said They are white from the ground.
Mason said They float and are made of gas.
Since then the class has learnt a lot more about stars, and have been challenged by the new things they have learnt. This is some of the new learning about stars that children have taken away from this term.
To showcase our learning about the stars the children did their own artwork about stars and space. They used sponges to create stars, nebula, supernova and black holes. While they were doing so, they were also learning about how to blend and mix colours and create layering effects to their work. Everyone had to practise on white paper before they were allowed to attempt their good copy. Many children found it challenging but everyone improved with practice. Please ask your child to tell you about the different things in their artwork and how they created them. They should be able to talk about what they learnt.
Some children practising.
Children working on their final artwork, putting into practice what they learnt.
Here Mason and Jacob are showing how they are splattering paint using a small amount of paint to make stars. Other children hold up their finished artwork. Well done Room 10! It is great to see you sharing what you have learnt through your artwork.
