Grandparents Day 2017

Grandparents Day is always special!
Grandparents hold a special place in our hearts and lives and being able to celebrate the relationship that we have with them was a privilege today.

Each student in Year 6 was asked to bring in a photo of their Grandparents. The photos were displayed with a handwritten note to their Grandparents. They were asked to write about a special memory or to thank their Grandparents for what they had done for them. The notes were so special and touching. The students took a lot of care with the messages that they had written. These were displayed in our Stage 3 quad. 

We started the day with an Assembly. Our Headmaster, Mr Korocz spoke to the Assembly about the wonderful honour of being a Grandparent. The choir sang some beautiful songs and Mr Sales had prepared a challenge for Grandparents to make with their grandchild: Matching paper Hats! The girls in Stage 3 recited some poems and Year 4 shared some interesting facts that they found out about MACC grandparents. 

Grandparents and Grandchildren went off to classes, where we played a Kahoot. We concluded our morning with Morning tea.

To make the day possible, there was a lot of organisation. Firstly to Charlotte's Grandma Mrs Appleby, who organised the flowers for our table. We think she is amazing because she is recovering from an operation at the moment. A big thank you to my amazing Year 6 class, who did all they could to help, especially Lachlan and Nate who set up tables yesterday without being asked. A big thank you to Jake and Zack who also found chairs for people to sit on. All of you are amazing!!!

Positive and Negative Space

Stare at the white dot for 10 seconds, then look at Van Gogh's Starry Night below. — Google Facts (@GoogleFacts) August 5, 2017 When creating a picture or artwork, positive and negative space both need to be considered. What is the positive and negative space? Look closely at the following picture: It shows the space between the faces takes on a shape.

In your Art diary complete the following:  Draw an example design of positive and negative Art then explain Positive and Negative Art.  Positive and Negative Artworks.  To understand Positive and Negative Art better we will be creating an Artwork like the examples below:  This artwork also uses the concepts of translation, rotation and reflection which you have been exploring in Mathematics.

Creating and making with textiles

This term, we have been looking at using textiles as a medium for creativity. Using wool or natural fibres to create something wearable is an ancient art. Some of the best memories that I have, when growing up was of creating felt and dyeing fabrics. This was the inspiration for the project for my Creativity project. After approaching our agricultural department for some raw alpaca fleece, the first step was to was this very dirty fleece. This was dirty, but a lot of fun! After it had dried, we dyed the wool and then felted it. The felting process takes a lot of work, hot water and soap. It requires the wool to be placed into a tea towel after it was carded to get rid of the rest of the dirt. There was a lot of enthusiasm to have a go. Rubber gloves were essential to protect little hands! This took much longer than anticipated so we have used purchased felt to make our creations The next step was to learn to sew using a needle and thread. To help this pro
