Jumping up the Number Line

We have learnt a new strategy in Maths ;Jumping up the number line'

We have been thinking about numbers relationally- their relationship with other numbers and have turned subtraction into addition to figure out a range of math questions

The story of the Cross

With Easter approaching, our class has created artwork on the cross. When we develop the story of the cross we will add more to our final painting pieces. Students did not know what they were painting until the final product was all pieced together

What is Climate Change?

We have been learning about climate change and how it is affecting the world. We have also been learning about the Catholic Aide Agency Caritas and how they can help. As part of understanding what climate change is we viewed a clip and later designed a diagram to help explain.
Here is one student's example of this.

Paint like Picasso Portaits

We have learnt about Pablo Picasso and how he changed the art world by looking at things in an abstract way. He created a field that everything was possible and people didn't have to paint or draw 'traditionally'
We have looked at how we have a front and side profile.
We added this together and then went through each of the facial feature to change them in a wacky way
We then explored hot and cold colours and coloured each side accordingly.

Have a look at some of our final products

Jesus Strand

We have been learning about the love Jesus has and the love he showed to His father. As a response Jesus prayed to God. He knew that God was able to do all things.

We have created prayers to go into our class box so that we are able to use these in the morning and pray just as Jesus did


We had our first lesson of Mandarin on Thursday
It was a lot of fun and we performed a song in both English and Mandarin, have a look at a round of our performances
