Microscopic Art

Room 6 were in awe at the art gallery at Waikato Museum inspecting microscopic works from Elizabeth Thomson. So much so that we decided to make our own! We talked about the best mediums for what they wanted to achieve, looked at lots of different objects microscopically and they decided what they wanted to recreate. Check out some of the awesome pieces they created!

Mount Te Aroha Mural

Room 6 have been super busy putting together a mural of Mount Te Aroha to hang in our classroom. The planning, action and teamwork involved in this has taken us a couple of weeks. Children wanted to contribute their own trees to the mural, so we did individual pictures to stick together as a collage. They didnt stick, so we had to cut some up and stick it together as best we could. It looks better than we imagined. Our next challenge is figuring out how to get it hung up!
