Amazing alliteration.

One way to make our writing more interesting is to use alliteration. It is a sentence or a group of words that have words which start with the same letter. We wrote some awesome sentences using alliteration. Charlie and Kalayias videoed some for you!

Latest artwork!

We looked at Pieter Mondrian's artwork. He used black lines, horizontal and vertical and the primary colours. We created some of our own artwork based on his style!

Colour and Emotion

We have been thinking about what colour different emotions would be. We were a bit surprised when we discovered that we had different ideas about colour and emotions. We thought that was OK though. We wrote some emotion words in the colour we thought it would be, if it was a colour.

Colour My World!

We having been playing with and discovering all about colour in Room 4.

We have found out heaps.

Red, Yellow and Blue are primary colours. They are called this because you can't mix any other colour together to make those colours.
We mixed the primary colours together to see what other colours we could make...

red and yellow make orange
red and blue make purple
yellow and blue make green

We looked at some artists paintings to see what colours they were using and if those colours made us feel a certain way. We had heaps of different ideas.

We are going to have a go at creating some artworks ourselves now! Keep an eye out for some fabulous artwork!

A Beautiful Word Cloud

We had a look at the following website.

It makes cool word clouds with any words you enter. You can change the font, direction, colour and style of the words and clouds! We made this one about Bradford School!
