Toucans learnt about the type of artwork made in the rainforest.  They focused on clay coil pots after practising designs with the clay tools.   There was lots of perseverance, concentration and creativity in the classroom today!

Collage Skills

In Art we explored different materials. We described how they felt. Were they smooth? Rough? Rigid, Soft? We then selected the right materials to use for our collage.

We also experimented in mixing paint to make green and then making it lighter or darker using white and black.


Today we started our Science Topic , “Materials”

There are many different materials and each has its own unique properties and uses. Here are some examples of common materials and their uses:

Wood: used for building structures, furniture, paper, and fuel.

Metals (e.g. steel, aluminium, copper): used for building structures, vehicles, electrical wiring, and cooking utensils.

Plastics: used for packaging, toys, electronics, and medical equipment.

Glass: used for windows, mirrors, drinking containers, and scientific equipment.

Textiles (e.g. cotton, wool, silk): used for clothing, bedding, and upholstery.

Concrete: used for building structures, roads, and bridges.

Rubber: used for tyres, gaskets, and seals.

Ceramics: used for dishes, tiles, and decorative objects.
