Learning in the Library
Year One has been looking at the influence of Friedensreich Hundertwasser who was an Austrian visual artist during Library time this week. The boys looked at the way he used colour and shape in the houses that he designed. They boys then created their own houses, using similar design ideas.
Boys using the Library before school
It is always great to see boys coming into the Library before school to do some reading, borrowing or playing board games with their friends. Below are some snap shots of boys using the space this week.
