Lines of Inquiry
first part of our inquiry was to look at the work of the Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh. He uses a lot of texture in his work by applying thick paint an strong brushstrokes. We made a transcription of his famous painting STARRY NIGHT using oil pastel and watercolor. He has created texture in many of his paintings using the same technique.

HONEY I SHRUNK THE KIDS.
Wedneday 7th October
Wayne Szalinski is a crazy scientist who invents a shrinking machine that is so powerful it only blows things up. When the kid next door hits a baseball through the window and it lands in the path of the machine's laser, it begins working. Wayne's two kids plus the ones next door end up getting shrunk. Wayne accidentally sweeps them up and puts them out with the trash, so they then have to travel through the thick grass back to the house, while braving giant bugs, sprinklers, and a lawn mower.I
We are going to imagine what our world looks like when we have been shrunk;
- Everything will look surreal because they look bigger.
- Maybe things will look scary like Miss Caz's shoes walking towards me.
- Maybe the cleaner will try and vacuum me and throw me away.
- Maybe I will drown in the sink.
- Maybe a grade 5 student will add me to their collage by accident.
- Maybe I will have to fight a battle with a fly.
- Maybe Miss skyrtic will think I am a bug an spray me with Baygon.
- Maybe Miss caz thinks I am ............................................................... and..............................
- Maybe ??????????????????????????????????????????????
