During our transition days we started to look at the artist we will focus on during Arts week,  Wassily Wassilyevich Kandinsky from Russia. Inspired by his work, "Concentric Rings" we produced our own tree interpretations. To make the leaves for the trees we used a variety of art media including: pencil, pens, pastels, watercolors, paint, tissue paper. We used batik to make our dramatic backgrounds. Finally we put all our art media to produce our finished piece.  A display of our work will be outside our classroom in September, please come and take a look.

Today is the start of our two transition days and we have had a fantastic first morning together.As part of our topic on, "Land of the Free" we went on a QR code hunt. We used the iPads to crack codes to retrieve information about famous American cities. We learnt many interesting facts, Did you know New York is named after York? Tomorrow we will use the information to write fact files about American cities.
