The Sculpture of the PARKVALE TREE

During Term 3 we have been learning about The ARTs. For the Art exhibition we have designed and created a sculpture model of our PARKVALE TREE.

We created this because we have been studying New Zealand Art. We learnt that Dick Frizzell was famous NZ artist who had created many different art types. Dick Frizzell was also a past Parkvale Student.

Room 3 favorite art he produced was The Foursquare Man. We realised this was KIWIANA so we have also learnt about KIWIANA. From this we thought we would like to produce our own ICON/SCULPTURE. So this is where the Parkvale Tree came into it.

Another motivation for our art was the trip into Hastings to see all the art around town. Around town was the Hastings Art Centre, The Tools, The Pou (Maori Carvings) The Fountain, The Giant Fish Trap etc.

Check out the pictures below to see how we created our amazing  PARKVALE TREES!!!!

Easy Blog Photo
In Room 3 we have been looking at The Arts. One type of art we have looked at is Drama. During reading we have been looking at different plays and adding actions, props, etc to the play. Today we got to perform the plays to the class. Ben was the judge of the plays. He was looking for great teamwork, clear voices, character voices, actions, and different props. He said he was going to be a fair judge!!!! Check out the pictures to see the groups in action

Rebakahs Silver Fern Experience

Last Thursday Rebekah was lucky enough to travel to Wellington to watch the Silver Ferns take on Fiji in Netball. But this was not all she got to do. Rebekahs name was chosen out of hundreds of entry's to present the match ball to the Silver Ferns before the game. Rebakah was extra lucky as she got to present the ball to Katrina Grant which is her favorite player.

Check out her pictures from the game.
