In visual arts class this unit, students have been inquiring further into the elements of art:
In our latest inquiry into writing, writers will write about something they have experiences in and are passionate about (or are not passionate about J). They will share their opinion- whether it is positive or negative and will use evidence (their own experience) to support their opinion.
This unit allows writers to feel that their opinions are valued and have an audience.
We have been immersing ourselves as writers in reviews – of toys, of games, of books, of hotels. And we have been exploring the purpose of those reviews – how do they work? We have been able to make connections to our own experiences – how is it connected to other things? And we have noticed that sometimes our perspective can be different from others – what are the points of view?
Our eagle-eyed critics are sharpening their pencils ready to make their opinions heard!

This week the children were going on a summer holiday. They were asked to pack their bag which contained 4 different coloured shirts and shorts. Linking to our learner profile attribute of thinker they then had to find all the different combinations of dress using these 4 colours.
After exploring for a while the whole class gathered to share their strategies and we agreed that the best way to find all the combinations was to keep one thing the same (for example keep the same colour shorts) until all the combinations could be found.
As an extension some of the children had to find all the combinations using 5 different colored shirts and shorts plus 2 different colored hats. Many agreed this was much harder as their were so many more combinations.
The children have visited an alien planet. On the planet they met some friendly aliens with different numbers of eyes. Some have one eye and some have two eyes. Altogether there were ten eyes. How many different combinations of aliens can there be? Perhaps 1+2+1+2+1+2+1 or 2+2+2+2+2.
How about if there were 13 or 19 eyes? What if the aliens had 3 and 5 eyes what would the combinations be?
