A Colourful Creation

We created a beautiful colour mural today. We learned to draw portraits and paid particular attention to the shape of our eyes, noses and mouths. The trick was that we needed to use only one colour for each drawing! This is called mono-chromatic drawing. We could use pencil, crayon or texta to make our pictures and each person was assigned a colour to use. We did two each, but some of us did three or four because we finished quickly. For some of the drawings, we actually used two colours so they could go in between the groups of just one colour. When they were all done, we stuck them all together and hung them outside our classroom. We have had lots of compliments about our artwork already!

In Maths, we practised addition. We're becoming superstars at it now and know lots and lots of number facts in our heads. This makes it much easier to do trickier sums.

This afternoon, we created a Voki to add to our blog. When we visited the 2MK blog, we saw they had one and wanted to make one for ourselves! We thought of a message that would welcome people and asked them to leave us a comment. We recorded our voices and uploaded it so that it looks like the koala is talking! It was lots of fun picking out the character we wanted to use. You can listen to it by clicking the play button underneath the koala.

The best part of the day was when we got to eat the gingerbread house that Julie's mum made for us. It was delicious!

  3. Dear Smarties,

    You made a very beautiful mural. We loved the colors that you used. We are thinking that we should do the same sort of thing outside our own classroom. Thanks for the great idea!
