Room 10 - Pencil drawings
Last week for art we spent the day learning different drawing techniques using pencil.
We experimented with different lines and ways to shade shapes and images. Some of them were easy and some were more difficult.
At the end of the day we used only 4B pencils to create a picture using some of our new techniques.
Here are some of the examples.
A few weeks ago we received some UV beads. When under UV light these beads glow. Depending on how my UV light they are exposed to depends on how bright they glow.
We learnt all about UV light and then watched the following video which helped us to learn about why it is important to wear sunscreen.
We then got given some UV beads that we turned into necklaces and bracelets and got to experiment with them outside. We found that UV light can go through glass and so you can still get sunburnt inside by the window. We also found that our sun hats stoped the UV light when we put the beads under our hats. Thick materials tended to block our the UV light more than thin materials. We then covered the beads in sunscreen and they stopped glowing when out in the sun, proving that sunscreen actually does work!
Check out some pictures of us experimenting with the beads below.
Last week Room 11 (+ some of Miss Gray's Literacy Class) created some entries for the Festival of Flowers which was held at Riccarton High School over the weekend. There were 15 Categories you could enter but we focused on the design a vegetable garden and create a model flower categories. Out of hundreds of entries from a wide range of schools we were very lucky to come out with the following results:
1st = Kayla
2nd = Emma Cox
3rd = Emerson and Eilish
