4W: Wonderful 4W!

Mixed-media Art

This term Mr Whittaker has shown us how to use charcoal to combine tone and texture. We used the skills we practised in our sketch books to create a charcoal drawing of Muang Singh Temple, which we visited while in Kanchanaburi.

Next we used a computer program called Paint.net to create a piece of digital art. Using our charcoal drawing as background, we added a layer and 'multiplied' it so that it acts as tracing paper. We then 'painted' the sky using colours from the wheel, working around clockwise or anti-clockwise from dark to light.

We then used other colours for the building and foreground. Afterwards, we blended the colours using an effect tool.

We think you will agree that 4W did a fantastic job creating their digital masterpieces.

We will be having our Term 2 3-way conferences at the end of this week. We are all looking forward to celebrating our learning, looking at our achievements and thinking about our targets for our next steps to success.

Home Learning

Practise your responses to questions ready for your conference. 

You could also discuss the following questions with your parents so that we can focus on your learning targets at the conference:

  • What have you learned this term?
  • What have you enjoyed learning most so far this year?
  • What have you found challenging?
  • How does your behaviour affect your learning?
  • Which Learner Profile attributes best describe you?

Thinker       Balanced      Caring      Inquirer

Communicator      Open-minded       Knowledgeable      

Principled      Reflective      Risk-taker

Remember to think clearly about your communication: speak loudly and clearly and explain your thinking. This will be good preparation for your 3-way conference.

I really enjoyed my three way conference because I got to tell my mum what I did in school but time flew past

It was good to show my parents what I did in school like my trust story and my dare or not story and they enjoyed looking at my story.

my mum and dad said well done because miss Kay said good things like he is improving much in school.

I really enjoyed my 3-way conference because I like sharing my learning that I have done well. It was good to show what I like doing for example writing, Miss Kay and my mom where very proud of it too. My mom said that me and my brother are both talented at writing.

It was good to show my parents what I have improved on and share my targets.
But I don't like sharing the things I have to improve on. :(

It was good to show my learning from this half term because my mum and dad like seeing my work and how I improve from not so good, to better, and plus I like showing my learning to my mum and dad.

I really enjoyed the 3-way conference because it is a chance for you to show your mum and dad what you've done. It was good to show the real actual piece instead of describing at home. My mum and dad said that I already told them about school at home so it is a good chance to see what I'm actually talking about.

I really enjoyed my 3-way conference because I liked sharing my learning with my parents and I can improve because my mom knows what I need to improve on and can help me at home too.

I really enjoyed my 3-way conference because my teachers said I was very good and it was nice to show all my work to my parents. I liked showing my maths work to my parents because I worked out 19 questions and usually
I only work out 9. When the 3-way conference had finished my mum said that I had been very good in school.

I really enjoyed my 3-way conference because I explained nicely to my mum and she got to see my work that I do and she got to know what I need to work on.

It was good to show my mum what I was working on because my mum saw what things I was doing and what I need work on.

My mum and dad said I was doing better than the start of the year.

Busy week for 4W!

What a busy week it's been for 4W. On Tuesday it was interclass teeball. Everyone put in a great deal of effort to support the class team. It was wonderful to see everyone supporting one another and working together.

After teeball we worked with Mr Whittaker who taught us about how to create different tones using charcoal. We combined tone and texture (marks) to create pictures of Muang Sing temple which we visited while in Kanchanaburi.

Today it was Busking Day. We were all looking forward to showing off our performance skills in order to raise money for charity. 

Way to go 4W!
