‘Scratch’ and Code.org are generating
a lot of excitement among students.
Bruno and Alex from sixth class have
been coding for a VERY short while.
If you click on the link in the tweets on this post,
you will see the digital art being created.
You can also see the code the students wrote.
We look forward to learning much, much more.

If covering the topic of colour in class,
this website has great potential
for encouraging learning and discussion.
It is called Colours in Motion
and was created by Maria Claudia Cortes
It is interactive and animated
and deals with the symbolism of colour.
There are also opportunities
to experiment with digital art.

We are learning about a famous artist.
His name is Picasso.
He broke the rules.
We like to experiment too.
We like his paintings.
They are unusual.
Click on this link and you can experiment
with creating pictures like Picasso’s.
And if you would like to read about
other artists we have studied,
take a look at these pages about
Van Gogh & Mondrian.
