We have been learning all about report writing over the last few weeks. We learned that a report gives us information about something. There is always a title. Reports are divided into paragraphs with headings. Reports usually describe something. Reports contain lots of facts. Facts are always true and correct. Reports can be find in newspapers, magasines, school books etc.
We read lots of different types of reports. As it was coming up to Halloween we decided to do a report on bats. We had to research facts on bats. We then had to make a plan and after that write up our reports. We also made bats in Art to make our reports stand out. We learned some really interesting facts about bats. Come and have a read when you have time!
First Class have been learning about colours and how we mix colours. We made colour wheels to learn more. Colour wheels show us how colours are related. They remind artists how to mix and think about colours. The primary colours are: red , blue, yellow. Primary colours cannot be made from other colours. Artists create all the other colours of the rainbow by mixing together the primary colours.
The secondary colours are: green, orange, violet (purple). Secondary colors are made by mixing two primary colors. Each secondary colour is made from the two primary colours closest to it on the colour wheel.
We had great fun designing our own colour wheels!
