Foundation students will be exploring colour, shape and texture to create a self-portrait. They will be using materials such as pencil, crayons and paint on cartridge paper.

Grades 1 and 2 students will be developing their ability to plan and create artworks over a period of weeks starting with sketching ideas in their visual arts journal.

Grade 3 and 4  will be exploring art making through the visual art journal and creating a work of art  using a variety of techniques and materials over the term.

Grade 5 and 6 will be expanding their knowledge of art making techniques and also looking at examples of artworks from different cultures to to help inspire their artwork.

Spanish

 

Bienvenidos to Spanish with Srta. Romero!

 

I am from Venezuela and I like to share my language culture with all the community at WPPS.

 

This term students in Foundation will learn basic vocabulary and songs… they will start an exciting program!

Students in 1/2 ‘s will develop new vocabulary about emotions and classroom routines, they will ask questions and use Spanish often.

3/4 ‘s  will make questions and exclamations in Spanish, they will create a role-play and play Spanish trivia.

5/6 ‘s will discover more about Spanish-speaking communities by using travelling vocabulary.

I am looking forward to see all the achievements through the term!!

 

Hasta pronto…
