Kandinsky Art Week 3 Term 2 2022


We have been looking at Kandinsky art with Mrs Bell. Kandinsky uses circles, lines and colour to create his artwork.

We created our own versions using technology. We used Google Draw, the shape and line tool.

Term 1, Week 8 2022

 This week we had a look back on all the amazing cybersmart/chromebook learning we have done over the term. We have learnt so many new skills! The children are becoming so confident in their skills and learning.

We have begun our report writing this week. All those questions the children have been asking you at home about their ancestors are being put to good use. These reports are in their drive so when they have finished they can share them with you. They are beginning to sound fantastic!

Learning at Home: Remember all work is uploaded onto the class learning site under learning at home. If you have any questions please email me. Paper packs can also be requested by ringing the office or sending me an email.

Term 1, Week 6 2022

 Another busy week in Room 4. We can't believe we are halfway into the term already. This week we had a look at the features of Google Draw. We created underwater scenes using the shape and line tools. These have all been posted onto our blogs so check them out! If you would like to give one a go, have a look on our learning site for instructions.

We finished our I have a dream writing this week. They look amazing blowing in the breeze in the classroom. The Room Four kids have some big dreams and goals for themselves, the world and the community. Some of the dreams include cleaning up the beach, helping homeless people and helping out children who are less fourtunate than they are. These are pretty big goals but we believe they can achieve anything they set their minds to!

Term 1, Week 5 2022

 Another busy week in Room Four this week. We have begun our I have a dream writing unit and so far they are looking amazing, we cannot wait to upload photos for you all to see.

We hope you have been enjoying all the blog posts we have been creating on our own blogs. We are beginning to get the hang of this but need a little more practice. It would be great if you could leave a comment, we would love to reply.

Friday we had our week 5 big reward day. Most of room four were able to go as they recieved no warnings over the past 5 weeks! We had a treasure hunt and milkshake, with lots of goodies along the way.

Term 1, Week 4 2022

 Room Four has been very busy this week learning some new Chromebook skills. We have been looking at the different shortcuts on our keyboard. Did you know ctrl + c copies and ctrl + v pastes!

Have a look on our class site under Cybersmart to find a slide all about knowing our keyboards. You can also find all of our learning on our individual blogs.

The Children have learnt this week how to embed a link into their blog so the Google Slide presentation will be displayed. This was a tricky process for some but we all got there in the end.

At the end of the week we will be leanring all about taking screenshots. Stay tuned onto our blogs and learning site for more information!

This week we have our first P.E. lesson with Michael. We are all looking forward to getting out there and learning some new skills. Michael will be working with Room Four every second week.

We hope everyone has a fantastic rest of their week!

Term 1, Week 3 2022

 The beginning of the year is flying by so fast already. The children are well settled into the class routines and are enjoying getting back into the swing of things. We begun this year by creating a class waka. This represents all of Room 4 rowing together and working as one. Around this we discussed how we think our classroom should run. What class rules should we have? How can we make our classroom a safe and happy environment for everyone?

We have also been working hard on our self portraits. These were created with a black and white photo of ourselves, a crayon and a sharp pencil. The children are so proud of how their art has turned out. They look fantastic on the wall.

If you would like to see and hear about more of our learning, pop on over to our class learning site. This is updated daily. On the class learning site you will also find all the work/learning needed if your child is at home isolating or unwell. I update this daily based on whether or not any children are away from Room 4 for that day. If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch via email. I am more than happy to help!

Have a fantastic week,

Miss McGeady
