Bye Bye September

Well the year marches on and another month gone and still there is no let up for P3. In another super busy week we waved goodbye to the P7s who were going to camp. It was quiet around school without them. We learned how to make and use templates and spray paint (messy & fun) when we made space & rocket splatter paintings. And we learned more about the life of Neil Armstrong who was the first man to walk on the moon. We had to write a super long story so we could put in all the bits we had learned about writing interesting and structured stories. With the good weather it was really nice doing our reading in the bay window – warm & cosy. We have all been going over our throwing skills – feet in the correct place, arm action correct and finishing with our hand pointing out at the target.  We are definitely getting better! Shiela Payne of NYCOS came in to do some singing and music games with us which was really fun. And right after that we got to go down into the words to do some transient art. We used natural material we found in the woods to make some really creative pictures. And would you believe it, we even stumbled on the same type of toad that Cameron had caught the previous week.

Loving the splatter pictures and the transient pics in the woods! And reading in the window with that sun coming in looked like fun too.

Just catching up on the blog – you’ve done so much! It’s nice to see the space pictures – Magnus told me all about them at the time and he thought the technique was really cool!

Catching up with lots of information and the wonderful pictures. Makes me wish I was back in Primary 3! All the art work is wonderful but I have to be honest and say, the transient art in the woods is my favourite – sometimes I find it when out walking our dog Jake and it makes me smile – a lot! We also saw some wonderful pictures of a place called Westwood Hills Nature Visitor Centre in St. Louis!
