Kowhai class would like to share some of their learning with you over Term 1 2019.

We have been learning to write persuasive texts.  They are trying to convince you which art form was the best way to express yourself.  Read their arguments and then you can decide!


My favourite art form is drawing. Drawing is the best because you can draw things that aren’t real.  You can use any colour. It looks like it’s real but it’s not.  You can use different types of pens. 
It is so fun. By Tyla

My favourite art form is painting. You can use little brush strokes to show light and dark and movement in the water.
You can paint whatever you want. I like painting. By Phoenix

My favourite art form is dancing.
You get to twirl and dance and jump.
Dancing is the best!
By Isabella


My favourite art form is painting. I like it because you can blend colours.  You can make different colours. You can make whatever you want.  You can take your art home and keep it forever. I love painting! By Anna

My favourite art form is drama. I love drama because you can act characters and I love making people laugh.  I love dressing up and I love being brave and calm in front of lots of people.
When I act, I can tell a story.
I love drama.  It is the best!
By Emma

My favourite art form is drawing.  We can draw things that are the best.  We make awesome pictures.
I feel creative!

My favourite art form is music.
Music is the best because you get to listen to all different music.
Music is the best because you can play different kinds of music.
You can play ‘The Wind and the Sun’.  The wind is really loud.  The sun is really calm.  Butterfly Fly Away is very calm too.   What Does the Fox Say is very loud.
Music makes me feel happy.
