Coral Reef Art

Published Friday, February 10, 2012.
Last updated: Friday, February 10, 2012

We created our own imaginary coral reef pictures.

First we looked at photographs of coral reefs.  We drew outline images from different scenes using pencil.  


Then we went over the outline using black ink.


Miss Ponsuk photocopied our line drawings so the ink wouldn't run when we painted them. The we used watercolours thinking carefully about the size of the paintbrush.

Have you practised our song for the production yet?

Below are the lyrics to our song The Great Barrier Reef:

 The Great Barrier Reef


In the Pacific

Just off Australia

In shallow water

There lies a reef.

With Miles of coral,

Of different kinds,

Provides a home for

The ocean life.


Each tiny polyp

Are joined together

In shallow water

To make the reef.

Inside their bodies,

Small algae live,

They’re getting food for

Protection they give.


Extending tentacles

That are filled with poison

The polyps prey on

Their evening meal.

For passing plankton,

It is not kind,

But polyps swallow

Their tasty find.


Amongst the coral

In nooks and crannies

So many things hide

Searching for food.

Lobsters, crabs and starfish,

And snails and fish,

Are looking out for

 Their very next dish.

Symmetrical Patterns

 We made symmetrical patterns using pegboards. We took it in turns to add a peg. Our partner had to add another peg at the other side of the line of symmetry to make a symmetrical pattern.
