We are really excited in Room 9 as we now have one to one computers. We are busy at the moment learning how to take care of them. Yesterday Miss Nation showed us how to go to our google drive and open google docs. We are also creating our own blogs to show our learning. Thanks Mrs Larsen and Ms O'Connor!

Pastel Art

We have been working with pastel for art. We looked at art by Jasper Johns and used one of his ideas to make artwork with our names. We started by folding a piece of white paper to get 16 rectangles.
