Art News

In Art, I want boys to ask questions and be authentic with their inquiries. So when the Year 5 boys started investigating the world of birds, they were encouraged to start adding questions to a board. Kyle de Bruin wondered, "Do all birds have necks?" We learnt that they have varied number of vertebrae, like a parrot only has 9 where a swan has 25. Waterbirds tend to have the longest necks. This information gathering will help the boys when they start to build their sculptures. During this immersion stage, boys are doing lots of drawing to learn about the form of birds. We are focusing on diversity before we make a final selection to develop.
