A Spring Garden

Term 4, 2021 It is worth celebrating such a beautiful Spring and Class 1MB have done just that. The Year 1 students have been busy this term using things from their environment to create garden art. Experimentation with clay, and with inspiration from garden artists and their local environment the class have designed and created unique pieces of garden art to enhance their playground. "Students were given the freedom to create a piece of garden art which expressed their connection to the environment. After being given some stimulus they made individual decisions about shapes, colours and use of matchsticks, pop sticks and anything they could find in the garden to make patterns," said Mrs Jane Baldwin, Year 1 teacher. "It was wonderful to see the enthusiasm of the students as they watched their creations come together." Student Reflections "I used circles for my garden art which I painted gold. I chose gold because it made it look lovely. We are going to put them in the garden near our pigeon holes." Ava "We made wonderful and very colourful clay garden art." Geoffrey "I made mine look like a cookie - painted gold with a star shape in the middle, because that's what cookies look like," Mikayla
