This sign is made from a small edge of all the student's art. The student's art looks awesome on Mamaku's walls.
These are a few examples of the student's art work based on Robert Delauney's art.
Here is a fabulous painting showing the circular shapes, lines and colours that our students used.
This piece of artwork shows triangular, circular and half circular shapes within an array of spectacular colours.
Here we have a lot of lines, dots, squiggles and an array of shapes within these concepts.
The students thoroughly enjoyed exploring Robert Delauney's art.

Welcome back to 2017! What a busy first few weeks we've had! 

We are in Harold today learning about Empathy and how to be a good friend! 


As a group, we have had the most fantastic responses and we have some great role models showing themselves.

Callum - you made a 'monkey' of yourself showing people how to be assertive and answer questions. You were also a fantastic role model.

Billie Jean - what fantastic ideas you had to share. You are very empathetic!

Hannah - another great role model and someone who shows empathy all the time.

Jasmine - for being brave and sharing your ideas even when you were a bit nervous!

I especially loved the way you all listened, showed respect and included each other in your discussions. 

We learnt what empathy meant.

We learnt that being aggressive and passive would make the problem bigger.

BUT what is the third word we learnt about that means the opposite of passive and aggressive? Leave me a comment with your answer and what it means.
