Term 3

Liz Walker has been working with grade 5F on a project called Mapping the Bay. This community workshop supported by the Mornington Peninsula Shire invites the students to actively participate in a creative public artwork celebrating their experiences of living in the Mornington Peninsula – a region recognized for its diverse and spectacular natural beauty. Sections of the student’s  artwork which have been photographed  and printed were cut  to size and glued to wooden map pieces. The pieces fit together to form a map of the Mornington Peninsula that is colorful and fun but has a serious environmental message about the importance of preserving our precious marine environment.

Heads and Tails

Last week we celebrated Book Week. The preps looked at the book Heads and Tails :Insects by John Canty. They each decorated a bug or insect as wearable art. They used a product called magiclay and modelling foam to decorate their insect adding joggle eyes. We used supertac glue to glue on a ring base onto the back of the insect.

Book Week

Next week is Book Week and each grade will be creating a piece of artwork based on the Theme and Short Listed Early Childhood and Picture Books. Samples of their work will be displayed in their classrooms and at the Book Fair.
