The new 4OQ!

September 7, 2010

Hello and welcome, this is new 4OQ typing with Mr Quinlan.

We have been painting, and it was really fun. We painted with dots using the rubbers on the end of our pencils. Our paintings were boomerangs and surf boards. We have been doing it because Mrs Haughey showed us some art from people who live in Australia. She brought a boomerang back from Australia. She also brought back a didgeridoo, Mr Purnell played it in our class.

We have been doing origami for the last couple of days, we have been making easy and hard  origami. We have been making paper aeroplanes and some animals. We had a test to see whose went the furthest.


  1. That sounds like lots of fun!
    Do you know how didgeridoos are made?

  2. Hi 4OQ!

    Your paintings look fantastic, the colours are really vivid. I hope you keep having lots of fun and keep us up to date with everything you get up to. I look forward to reading more.

  3. Your boomerang art looks brilliant! I can see you have really concentrated to make such detailed patterns on them! Well done!

  4. Wow your paintings look really exciting. Did you know that some of the symbols use in aborigional art represent things ( http://www.jintaart.com.au/iconography/iconhmpg.htm ) and tell traditional stories?

  5. Hi Year 6

    I’m the Deputy Headteacher at HeathfieldCPS in Bolton and we, like you, are a blogging school. I know Mr. Quinlan and I think you have a brilliant teacher. Your photos look great and I will be coming back regularly coming back to see how you are getting on. I will also get our Year 4’s to visit too.

    Keep up the good work!

  6. I used to teach Japanese students and they taught me some great Origami. Some of it can be really hard. What was the most difficult one that you made?

    • Thank you for reading our blog. Origami is hard! The hardest Origami one person made was a dress. Some of us found the bulldog, the japanese Phoenix, the gibbon, sunglasses and the doughnut difficult. We might make a film of making origami, please check it out if we do.


  7. wow that sounds like a lot of fun i bet my year r4 class would enjoy doing that! what else did you find out about australia?

  8. Hi 4OQ! I love your blog, and it is fantastic to see you doing such amazing work already this year. I look forward to reading and seeing your work as you do it. I will encourage as many people as possible to read it! Good luck.
