Amelia: Good morning, everyone. Today I want to show a game you can play outside. It’s called Rock Hunting. People are going to hide a rock like this and they are painted different patterns. They are going to hide them somewhere like- just to show you- somewhere around in the garden or park. And then they send where they hid it on the Internet and then people go and find it. If they find it, they can take them home and then hide them again. And we are going to play something similar in our class. So I’m going to split you in spares. I’ve already done that. Two people are going to go outside and we are going to try and hide the rock. Then they will come inside and try to find it.
The first people to go outside are going to be Anri and Charlie. The rest are going to line up. So everyone is lining up. Then you can take a rock. When I say go, then everyone is going to go and hide their rocks. Andy, take a rock. Kou? No, only the two people go outside, Ms Florence. Okay, go and hide the rocks. I’m just going to go outside and check on them.
Now I’m going to call the seekers in to find the rocks. Go and find those rocks. Anri, search around this part. Try that part over there.
Olivia: Try the art centre too.
Amelia: Lets see if they found any rock. Find any rocks?
Amelia: You guys have hidden them well.
Charlie: I found one! I found one!
Ben: It’s Cinderella’s. Cinderella hid that one.
Olivia: There are more rocks in the art centre. In the art centre there are many.
Andy: Don’t give them any clues.
You hid the rocks really well.
Ben: There’s one near Ms Florence’s desk.
Amelia: I’ll go and check in the art centre.
Ben: Okay, I’ll give you another clue. It’s on the left side.
Charlie: Wow, you guys are great hiders!
Today we had our second and final session of bridge building. We needed to really work together to finish our projects in time! Tomorrow we will present our bridges and test them, and our classmates will give us feedback using the Ladder of Feedback.
Andy: We are going to watch a video of my drumming set when I was 5 years old and 2 days.
Ms Leah: How did you learn to play the drums?
Andy: I had a teacher in a classroom in Beijing who taught me.
Andy: And I also have something else. This picture is when I went to a museum, and this is the artist.
The artist painted a cat on some traditional drawings.
This is the original one. He added his cat.
Andy: He took a photo and put on the cat's photo.
It was the Meow Museum in Singapore.
We watched a slide show about bridges and noted several 2D shapes in their design so we decided to design our own bridges using our knowledge of 2D shapes.
Yesterday, we had our first session in the design centre.
Olivia: I’m going to show you two things. And I’m going to show you everyone using our body. Ballet you can do using our body. This is just a colouring book.
Charlie: Can I see the ones you already coloured?
Olivia: I didn’t colour before.
And another thing today I’m going to show you how to make a Korean flag. This is my Korean flag. And you are going to make this. I’m going to give you a paper.
Ben: You mean a piece of paper.
Olivia: Yes, but I need to cut this.
Are there only 10 right now? 11 with me.
First, go to the table now.
JiaRui: On one table?
Olivia: Sit anywhere.
First, did everyone sit at the tables? First, you draw in the middle the circle.
Ray: Like this?
Olivia: Everyone draw a circle in the middle like this.
Amelia: Is this okay, Olivia?
JiaRui: Follow the instructions.
Olivia: Draw a circle.I didn’t say colour yet. Did everybody do it? Then draw like this, this and this.
Amelia: Draw a wiggly line now, Anri.
Olivia: And you… and do this one.
Olivia: I will just show you. Just do a circle and…
JiaRui: I’m going to write my name on mine.
Charlie: Mine too.
Ray: Can we write our names on the back?
JiaRui: Do we also need to draw the lines?
Ray: I need to draw the lines.
Amelia: Can we write the names at the back?
Ben: Can I colour yet?
Amelia: Is this right, Olivia? Is mine right?
Cinderella: Is mine right?
Amelia: Oh, she is showing ours to the other table. Ours is right!
Charlie: Do you think this is correct?
JiaRui: Mine is kind of funny.
Charlie: It looks beautiful.
JiaRui: Olivia, is this okay?
Charlie: Is this okay, Olivia?
Olivia: It’s okay.
Irfan: Can I colour?
JiaRui: Is the top red or blue?
Olivia: It’s red. The bottom is blue.
Amelia: You can start colouring Cinderella.
Cinderella: No, I haven’t gotten it right.
Amelia: Oh, you don’t have a check mark yet?
JiaRui: Olivia, do I have to colour very beautifully?
Olivia: It’s up to you.
Charlie: Ray, that is very hard and it’s making squeaky nose. It doesn’t have to be that dark.
Ray: Yes, it does.
Charlie: Well, you don’t need to do it that hard. When you do, it makes a squeaky nose and it hurts my ears.
Charlie: Can we bring it home?
Ray: I finished.
Olivia: Ray, give it to me. I cannot see. I will check. I can just put it here. I can check and give it to you.
Olivia: Cinderella, you can colour now.
Kou: The top is red?
JiaRui: Can I do another one?
Since we tend to rely heavily on our art, we wanted to see how our art would change without sight. Here we are doing finger painting and clay work by touch.
Ray: Now we are going to cut the snow flags. So please go to the tables.
This is an example.
Olivia: Did you make that?
Ray: Yes, I made it myself. Everyone take a paper. Wait, I need to take one too.
Okay, everyone, do this.
Olivia: Fold it in half.
Ray: Yes. And then you need scissors.
Now you cut under.
Cut here. There's a rectangle at the bottom.
Only one pair of scissors. Everyone will get a turn.
When you finish it, open it. Then you need to fold this side.
Ben: Wait until everyone is finished cutting.
Ray: Okay. Open it. The last one is really important. You need to work hard for the last step.
Ben: What do we do now Ray?
Ray: We are waiting for everyone to finish.
After this, we will go into two groups. You fold this. Then you need to draw shapes.
Andy: I know what is wrong, Ben. You didn't cut the triangle out.
Ray: This one is too short.
Then you draw shapes.
Amelia: Ray, is this right?
JiaRui: How do you do it, Ray?
Amelia: Ray, is this right?
Ben: Can I cut it, Ray?
Ray: I think you need to cut in the middle.
Andy: Can I cut it?
Ray: You need to draw more. My dad says.
Olivia: Is it like this?
Ray: You need to cut there.
Charlie: Is that a pattern? You have to draw a pattern.
Irfan: Do you need to cut here?
Olivia: I did it by myself! I just thought and did it.
Cinderella: Where do I cut? Here?
Hyuga: Can I see that?
Ray: Anri needs to cut. Lets get more scissors.
Olivia: I am a thinker.
Ray: I think we need the recycling bin.
Irfan: Is this it?
Justin: I brought a drawing. This is Justin. This is my Papa. This is my buddy. This is my daddy. This is a restaurant. I went for a walk. I went to the restaurant. I had lunch at the Dutch Club. I ate duck for lunch. It tastes yummy. It’s my favourite food. Any questions?
Ms Leah: Do you like drawing or painting better?
Justin: Painting. I like painting.
JiaRui: Who is this?
Justin: My friend.
JiaRui: Now, I'm going to show you this, because this can spin on your finger. You can perform.
You need to put your finger in the middle here and then spin it.
Irfan: Hello, everyone. My Show & Tell today is about paper plate crafts.
This is a snake craft. I did it yesterday night.
This is a fish craft. I did it yesterday night.
This is an owl craft. I also did it yesterday night.
So today we will do it together, okay?
JiaRui: Did you make it by yourself?
Irfan: I made it with my mom and my dad too.
