Last Thursday saw Bell Primary School celebrate international Make Music Day 2018 by holding a lunchtime concert on the Basketball Court. The Grade 5/6 Rock Band and Senior Vocal Ensemble performed some music for students (and some visiting parents and family members) during their lunch break. What a fantastic celebration it was!
During Term 2, students in grades Prep, 1 and 2 have had the opportunity to come along to a lunchtime club once a week in the Music room called ‘Junior Jam Club’. Contrary to popular belief, we don’t actually make strawberry jam, we play music together and try different instruments we’ve never tried before. It’s so much fun!
The Grade 5/6s have been hard at work this term creating these beautiful Japanese koi scroll artworks. The focus for this artwork was on drawing anatomically correct fish and showing movement and rhythm in the water. The students used water colour paints, decorative paper, wooden sticks and wool. What I find interesting is that all the students have created very unique artworks, despite the fact they all painted the same type of fish, koi. If you would like to see these artworks up close, there is a display in the front office and in the main hallway. Enjoy!
As part of the Asian art unit this term, the Grade 1/2 students created these beautifully detailed Chinese Willow Plates. During this project, students learnt about monochromatic artworks, with a focus on hues. Students also learnt about the story behind the willow design and used this as inspiration for the composition and subject matter of their piece.
