In room 23 this term we have been focusing on colour in our Art Alive inquiry and how colour makes us feel. We have created lots of artwork using colour and have been inspired by famous artists such as Kandinsky, Monet, Andy Warhol and his pop art. Experimenting with pastels, paint, and dye we even tie-dyed our own t-shirts.

We had our school Cross Country today and it was a very nice day. The music was great and everyone made a great effort to dress in their house colours. Ms Tumahai, Ms Hill and Mrs Mackinlay had fun cheering us all on. Room 23 has been practising every day and our hard work has paid off. Out of the Year 3 boys, Jerymiah came 1st, Noa came 2nd, Elijah from Room 22 came 3rd, and Maung Maung came 4th. Ponyamon came 5th. It was a great afternoon.

One lunchtime Noa found some chalk on the ground so he decided to draw The Statue of Liberty on the ground. I thought this was very good. We have been practising drawing landmarks and obviously, Noa remembered how to draw The Statue of Liberty.

Our classroom inquiry display has some really cool 3D puzzle Landmarks. We will be using different mediums in the arts to create some of the Landmarks in the image below.
Our maps are low enough for us to find the places where the landmarks are like, the giant gumboot, Lemon and Paeroa and The Auckland War Memorial just to name a few.

Today we did a science experiment for writing. We were writing a recount so we had to follow exactly what to do so we could write in the order of when we did it and what happens. To do this we needed milk, dishwashing Liquid and different colour dye.
We also needed a white bowl, jug and a cotton bud.
First, we put milk in the bowl and then we put a drop of yellow, blue, red and green dye in the milk. We dipped our cotton bud into some dishwashing Liquid and then we very gently put the cotton bud into the centre of the bowl and waited. We watched the colours dance around the bowl it was very mesmerizing and beautiful. We later learned that the dishwashing liquid causes the fat and the water in the milk to separate and spread apart, the result was a movement of colours dancing.
