2D or 3D?
Part of our introduction into 3D shapes was a 3D face challenge. We combined geometry, technology and art to create abstract faces from scraps of cardboard. We layered our face parts to add depth and detail and we finished with paint.
We are trying out our green thumbs! We will update our progress here.
Room 6 pirates!
Some of our learning this term has had a pirate theme. For this part of our learning we needed to make pirate hats that had guided measurements for the width and height of the sides. They were individualised by our personal choice of how to shape the top. We also wrote what we would do if we were pirates for one day. Some of us would be tough pirates, some would be nice pirates, and some of us would be great treasure hunters.
"If I was a pirate for a day I would be called Captain Diamond". I would only be a pirate if I knew there was a pirate school. I would go on a pirate ship. I would find treasure. I am a good and nice pirate. It would be fun to be a pirate for a day!"
"If I was a pirate for a day I would get all the money in the world! I would sail my pirate ship. I would dig for treasure."
Boom Whackers in assembly
Whether you missed it or just want to see it again, here are the room 6 superstars taking up the challenge of rhythm and beat with the boom whackers. This was a practice before the big event! We are all pretty nervous!!!
Taking on the mat challenge
One of the first challenges we faced was to think about how we can work together as a team. Here we are working on getting the whole class from end of the court to the other without touching the ground. Great problem solving and teamwork!
