Art Attack!

Koru Art!

 This is my art:



The goal was to create a artist inspired artwork.

Artist: Raewyn Harris

I learnt what colours looked good. Complementary colours work well together. Complementary colours are opposite each other on the colour wheel. I also learnt how to draw in chalk, this was quite hard.

My next step is to put more detail into my art next time.

The first step was to learn what colours went together. My colours were:
Red, Blue, Green, Purple and Yellow. Then we had to draw a draft and then drew it in chalk.
Then we had to do a good copy in chalk and then colour it in, mine looks very great.

Multiplication and division blog

WALT: Solve X by rounding and compensating.
        
I have learned how to split numbers into parts to help me solve problems.
Example:                                        
                                       
Multiplication 
                                         
6 x 43 = 258                        
                                       
6 x 40 = 240                           
6 x 3 = 18                        

240 x 18 = 258 



Division

WALT: Solve division by using the written strategy
Example:

      0 8 7

A moment in time.



WALT write "a moment in time" piece of writing.
Specific goals (Please highlight yours)
  • I can support my ideas with detail  (Ideas)
  • I can communicate precise meaning related to the topic  (Vocabulary)
  • I can use language that is suitable to the topic, audience and purpose. (Structure &  Language)
                                                       



                                                     My Moment in Time

                  At sun rise on a desolate beach a round object sits right in front of me.


I can see what looked like a boulder with BIG patches of smelly seaweed all around it.  Then the boulder slowly cracks open, slimy green ooze comes out smelling like chocolate. Next a monster leg appears out of a crack.


I can hear a cracking sound, the groaning of the monster trying to escape from the egg. There is also the sound of the wind blowing on my head and I can hear the crashing waves on the beach.


I can smell the salty air blowing on my head and the smelly seaweed sitting around egg.
The yummy smelling goo that smells like chocolate and the dead fish lying on the beach.



I can feel the wind blowing on my head and the slimy ooze under my feet. The slimy blue egg yolk all over me and water tacking the sand from under my feet and the other boulders crashing onto the beach.



I can taste the salty air I am breathing in and the egg yolk that tastes like chocolate and I think I have a fish in my mouth and the salty seaweed that was on the fish.



That was the end of my day beside the beach!

The End!
By Taylor


My reflection on this writing:
I have worked towards achieving my goals by:
I have used my senses to explain what I am thinking.

Dance Dance Dance!



I’ve enjoyed doing the Hip Hop because I learnt lots of
new moves, my favourite move was the strut.

I’ve been challenged by doing the Cha Cha, because it was hard to do the back to back.

I surprised myself when I did the toe tapping after the strut because I didn't think that I could do it. But I did.

I learnt how to do the Cha Cha because I don't do dance lessons, so it was the first time I had seen it.

I found that the Cha Cha was the harder than the Hip Hop dance because you had to do it with a partner and keep in time.

I would now like to the Hip Hop dance again, because it was so fun to do.

Run Bike Run Writing

WALT use poetic verse to recount an event we participated in.

The Run Bike Run event was usual enough; it had                              
the bridge,  small path,  the annoying bushes,
the teachers and even a lake.
Some red, blue flags and cones on the track.
My friends, my classmates and I did what kids do -  
Played on the path, pedalled as fast as we could.
Ran like the wind, shouted as loud as we could.
Did our best, helped others.
Passed other people, said hi to spectators.
Zoomed past the transition area.
Parked our bikes beside our group’s flag.
Doing their best to get first place.
