Perspective

Room One have been learning about perspective drawing. First we drew line drawings, then line and tone, and then A3 coloured versions.

We learned about eye level, horizon, vanishing points and parallel lines. Some of us learned about two point perspective and even three point perspective.

Zoe’s Zebra

image

On Monday I went to my sister’s kindy. ​When it was playtime I built a wooden zebra.  Its stripes are made out of material. Its legs can move and its neck can move too.  Its tail is made out of fluffy  strips. My friend Emma was there too.

Bottlesauruses

Room 13 have been making dinosaurs from soda bottles, card, parcel tape, kitchen roll and PVA glue.  Here are a few to give you a better idea about how they are made.  More to come soon…

The Climbing Tree

The tree is narrow, scratchy and tall.  I didn’t struggle to climb up the branches.  I felt thrilled that I got to the top.

BMX

I steered the handlebars and the wheel bounced up and down.  I almost crashed.  The BMX bike almost fell down the big hill.

Wet Kayak

Wobbling along in my kayak with my paddle splashing in the water, my toes were tickling.  I started to get wetter as I slowly drifted back to shore.

Bird Models

We made some bird models.  Even though we call them papier mache -they’re not really.

You need –

plenty of newspaper

some wide brown parcel tape or masking tape

kitchen towels

pva glue

card/cardboard

other bits and pieces (for feet, beak, legs)

hot glue gun

(a hairdryer is useful too)

Scrunch up the newspaper into the rough shape of the bird’s body.  Tape it together with the sticky tape.

Scrunch up newspaper into head shape and tape up.

Connect the head and body with tape.

Cut out wings (open or closed) and tail from card and tape on.

Cover the whole thing with strips of kitchen towel (about 5cm x 2cm) glued on with PVA,

When it’s all dry (use the hairdryer to help if you’re in a hurry) you can add the beak, feet, eyes and other details with a hot (ouch) glue gun.  We made them out of wire, drinking straws, dressmaking pins, bamboo skewers, plastic plates, old pens and anything else we thought looked good.

Carefully paint your bird with its main colours.  We found it best to mix paint on the bird.  Finally paint the beak, feet, eyes and any other details you think need adding.  Let it (hair)dry.

Finished!
