Term 3, Week 8 — School news
A Message from Hillary Team
Online Learning has been a really great learning experience for us all. We really enjoyed learning at home as we were able to concentrate on the tasks that were set and without any big distractions – just peace and quiet. We were able to work at our own pace and within our own time. The Google Meet videos were really great as we were able to see our teachers and friends and share a bit of our learning. The work was really easy to follow and allowed us to be successful within our learning. Although Online Learning was really good, it has been great to be back at school and to share what we were up to during Alert Level 3 and see our teachers and friends again.
Art Gallery Trip
In August, four of the Hillary Teams classes were fortunate enough to go to the Auckland Art Gallery. The purpose of our trip was to see how Storytelling can be illustrated into different visuals which provides us with a better understanding of the concept of Storytelling which we are currently learning for our Inquiry Topic. We learned that all pieces of art have a story behind them, there were some wooden sculptures and painted pieces. After learning about how Storytelling can be illustrated, we completed a scavenger hunt around the gallery looking for different items in the artworks. We were able to create our own pieces of art based on a story we have heard from our own families and share these with each other. In the learning centre, we were also able to create our own designs using magnet shapes and had a lot of fun. It was a fantastic experience!
