What is Art?

'What is Art?'
We have been looking at, sharing and creating collaborative artworks during Term 1.
We have experimented with colour, finding out about hot and cold colours.
We mixed colours, creating the colour wheel, with primary and secondary colours.
We then discovered contrasting colours.

Harvest Festival

We have been celebrating the change of seasons with our school Harvest Festival.
Today Fallan and Devonte harvested their own gardens at home and brought some feijoa's and vegetables to share with us for morning tea. We washed and cut the vegetables and enjoyed trying some new foods.  We loved the apple cucumbers and feijoas. 
 

 

 

 
Our favourite class song is the Kiwikids song 'The Two Legged Mice'. In the song it sings about rhubarb scones.  Mrs McK had some rhubarb in her garden that she harvested and brought to school. We looked closely at the curly leaves and long stalk and drew in our sketching books. 
We also found some little slugs, flicker bugs, spiders and aphids too!

Next we washed and took turns cutting up the rhubarb to make rhubarb muffins.

          Ingredients
    1 1/4 cup Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar
    1/2 cup oil
    1 egg
    2 tsp vanilla essence

    1/3 cup 
    Chelsea Demerara Sugar
    Method
      Preheat your oven to 200°C. Grease your muffin tin with either a bit of butter or non stick spray - you can use either a 6 muffin tray or 12 (whether you like big or medium size!)

      Combine Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar, egg, oil, vanilla essence and milk into a mixing bowl. Mix well. chop rhubarb into 2-3cm long chunks and add them into the bowl.

      In a seperate bowl sift dry ingredients together then blend in the rhubarb mixture into the dry ingredients. Try not to over stir it. Fill the muffin tin up to 3/4 of the way.

      Topping
      In a seperate bowl combine cinnamon, melted butter and Chelsea Demerara Sugar for the topping, then spoon on top of each of the muffins evenly. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.
