Harvest time in Oak Class
We have had a busy week learning about the traditions of Harvest time. As a class we wrote a Harvest prayer and the children were very thoughtful about the ideas they wanted to share.
In English we have been looking at different examples of non-fiction text. This week we have been investigating the different features of instructions. To support our Harvest learning we worked together to follow a set of instructions by following a recipe for vegetable soup.
We were very good at peeling, chopping and mixing the vegetables!
Oak Class Artists
Within our art session we have been studying the Italian artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo (also spelled Arcimboldi; 1527 - 1593) We have looked at the images he created and we talked about why we did and did not like his work.
As a group we have designed our faces inspired by the work of Arcimboldo using vegetables and fruit. Then we designed individual faces and created our own collages using fruit and vegetables. (Awaiting slideshow as art work is in progress!)
