Colour mixing

We used eye droppers and dye to investigate colour.  We have been learning about the primary colours- red, yellow and blue.  When these colours are mixed we can make new colours.  Look at what we found out!

Capacity is the amount of space inside an object that can be filled.  We measured and compared containers, milk bottles and lego buildings.  It was so much fun.  We worked as a team and helped each other with our learning.

Showing our thinking in different ways

Problem Solving in Mathematics on PhotoPeach

Winter Collage Art on PhotoPeach
We loved making Winter Art Collages.  Can you see the different media we used to create the feeling of Winter.  First we blended cold colours from light to dark.  We used dye to make the background feel even more wintery.  The snowflakes were fun to make.  We had to fold white circles into quarters and cut out small shapes around the edge.  Be careful not to cut off all the fold!  When we opened the circle back out we had created beautiful snowflakes.  By ripping black paper we made the silhouette of a big old winter tree.The polystyrene pieces look like snow and of course the favourite part was adding glitter.
We hope you love our "Wintery Wonderland".  Aren't we clever artists!
