Autumn Art

Here is our leaf art made by painting fallen leaves white and printing them onto the black paper.
The sponging in the background are the Autumn colours that we observed.


Kowhai team have made these polar fleece hats and decorated them. Thanks to all the helpers who came along to the 2 afternoons and helped us sew them. They look fabulous!!

We were Artsmart and Mathsmart with hexagons.

We had to colour in the diamonds in the hexagon using a light, medium and dark colour. When we put them all together they look 3D !!!

We have been learning about 2D and 3 D shapes. We used isometric graph paper to draw hexagons. We discovered that hexagons can have 6 triangles and 3 diamonds in them.

Arayvia drew 2 different sizes of hexagons.

June drew hexagons like in a beehive.

Olivia found triangles in some of her hexagons.
