Room 16/17 - Art Gallery Experience - Len Lye

On Monday the 13th November we went to Christchurch Art Gallery. We particularly focused on learning about the artist Len Lye.


Len Lye: Stopped Short by Wonder

We found out that he used lots of different mediums to create his art pieces like paint and metals. Some of his art pieces made the most amazing sounds and moved in really creative ways!

Finally we got to make out own Len Lye inspired art piece!

Here are some photos of our experience....

Grandparents Day - Room 13-15

Thank you to all the grandparents who visited our space on Friday.  The children loved having their grandparents come and visit.  Most grandparents have become followers of their grandchild's blog, and learned to make comments.

Dessert Island Challenge

Last Thursday while many children were at 3 Peaks, the rest of us had a lot of fun taking part in two desert challenges.  The scenario was that we had been shipwrecked on a desert island.
The first challenge was to construct a message in the bottle.  They had a limited amount of resources to use.  All groups had to plan and work well as a team.
The second challenge was to build a raft to escape the island.
Below of some of the photos from our day.
