Our Excursion to the NSW Art Gallery & Botanical Gardens on PhotoPeach
Year 4 has been learning about Picasso. We have enjoyed a visit to the Picasso Exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW. The girls have enjoyed researching Picasso’s life and learning about his techniques and styles. We looked at a picture of his 3D model of a violin. This inspired us to make our own 3D sculptures.
We have begun a very exciting and stimulating year at school. Our first two weeks have been spent with a variety of activities which have allowed the teachers to get to know their students and the students to get to know one another. We have made some very attractive cubes which contain information about the students’ families, friends and interests. The girls have also begun to show their creative talents by designing bright and colourful names to display in the classroom.
The teachers and students have worked together to discuss expectations of one another during the year. These are displayed in the classroom as a reminder for the time ahead. Together we read and signed a class manifesto. This expressed our desire to work as a community of learners, interested in each other, respecting each other and treating one another thoughtfully.
Each classroom is an environment where learners are encouraged to make decisions and take responsibility for their learning. Good questions are regarded as important as good answers.
We look forward to the year ahead which we believe will be a wonderful year of laughing and learning.
