Happy Christmas from Room 8!! We had great fun today on our last day of school before our Christmas holidays. We all wore our Christmas jumpers to get ourselves in the festive mood. We swapped our Kris Kindle presents and then sang lots of Christmas songs.
In the spirit of Winter and Christmas, we imagined what life would be like if we were trapped inside a snowglobe. We illustrated ourselves inside the snowglobe and then added glitter and paint. It made a great festive display in our classroom.
We're really getting into the festive spirit here in Room 8! We drew Santa's, reindeers and Christmas trees to decorate our classroom!
t's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Room 8! We created our own "Snowy Night". We looked and responded to Vincent Van Gogh's "Starry Night" and then created our own Christmas version of a snowman on a snowy windy night. We used oil pastels to colour and then a blue wash paint for the sky using pastels to imitate the brush strokes Van Gogh used to paint the sky.
