Queen Elizabeth II

We were very sad to hear about the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. We have been busy learning about Queen Elizabeth II. We listened to a story about her life, created a Queen Elizabeth II Timeline and created a Flip Book All About Queen Elizabeth II. She loved horses and dogs and her favourite dog was a corgi.

Line Painting Monsters

We explored water colour techniques to create colourful monsters. First we drew some line patterns with oil pastels. Then, we painted over the oil pastels with watercolours. Finally, we cut out faces for our monsters.

Friendship Week

We had a wonderful 'Friendship Week'. We talked about friendship, had a friendship assembly with Ms. McCarthy, visited 4th class for buddy reading, and sang as the choir for our Friendship Week School Mass and much much more.

'Recipe for Friendship'.
