Descriptive Poetry: Ooo, I love!

Welcome back to Term 3 everyone.

What a busy first week back! 

One of our activities was to write poetry, based on what we loved.

They were descriptive poems. We hope you enjoy reading them.

Storybird – Artful story telling – Our Stories

Recently in our class we had the opportunity of using the Storybird website to write our own picture storybooks using the wonderful art provided. We really enjoyed writing and used the visual cues to help create interesting short stories.

Here are the first of the completed short stories.

We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed writing them.

Congratulations to Travis, Anna, Kelvin, Trinity and Jade

for each successfully publishing their first short story.


What do you enjoy the most about using Storybird? 

2015 Poetry – I am

This term in our class we wrote “I am” poems.

We have not included our names on these poems,

because many of us wrote about some very real personal feelings.

We hope you enjoy reading them, as much as we enjoyed creating them.

Feel free to leave your comments.

We have included the slide show in three parts,

for those of you who have difficulty opening the full slide show.

Hopefully this will open more quickly than the previous one.

Please be patient as the slide shows load



As part of our healthy eating topic, we designed some plates for art.

We piled them full of proteins, carbohydrates, vegetables and salads.

We used crepe paper to design the food on our plates.

We enjoyed completing this art activity.

When we finished, we wrote our poetry, to reflect what we had learnt! 

We hope you enjoy reading our poetry, and viewing our art.

Don’t forget to watch the video on the benefits of eating fruit and vegetables

at the start of this slide show.


Poetry and Shaving Cream Art

After watching the YouTube video on ‘What a wonderful world’ by Louis Armstrong, we reflected on the beauty of our world. Looking through a window, what did we see?

Beautiful colours of the earth and the heavens.

We then created our “shaving cream” art piece using shaving cream and poster paint.

We had a lot of fun creating this art piece, even though it was so messy.

We didn’t know what designs we would end up with until we turned the paper over!

What we ended up with were some very abstract art pieces!

 When they were dry, we had to decide what shapes we would cut our art piece into; then we measured and cut the art piece into the different shapes.

Below is our interpretation of looking through a window and seeing the beautiful colours and shapes of the world around us.

Looking through the window of each art piece, what can you see?

Look closely because there are so many hidden shapes and animals. Look closely!
