Art Attack

What was the goal?

 The goal was to create artist inspired artwork.

What did I learn to do?

I learnt to create artwork inspired by Raewyn Harris. I also learnt how to create an amazing piece of art. I learnt that chalk soaks up the dye so if you want the dye to work you have to make the chalk very thick and wide so that it soaks up the dye. You also have to use crayon and make that really thick and cover up all of the gaps so that the dye doesn't do on the wrong part.

What is my next step?

I think that my next step is to cover up the gaps with the crayon a little bit better so that I didn't get so many dots of dye on my art.

Here is a photo of my art:


Music

WALT
To compose a and create a rap (with beat if possible) about bullying.

How did you go about achieving this?
I think that our rap worked out well because we all contributed our ideas.

What resources were used to help you?
The resources Brook, Kaira and I used to make our rap was a sheet of paper and we had to choose two words from each sentence. We also used a website called - HTML5- Drumkit.


Did you go through the process on your own or collaborate with other people?
I worked on the rap with Brook and Kaira.

How did you find the process?
I found that the process was fun and I think that our rap ended up being really good.

What did you enjoy most about the process of creating a rap?
The thing that I enjoyed the most was using the website -HTML5- Drumkit for the first time and also working together as a group to make a bunch of words into a really good rap.

What  might be your next step?
I think that my next step is to come up with even better ideas.


(We looked at what is Hip Hop and the 4 elements of it. We watched some rap videos on bullying. We were given an environmental rap in groups and had to learn and perform it. We looked at how rap is composed, and wrote some rhyming couplets about school. We were given a page of rhyming words that could be used and started the process of creating a rap. We were given ideas for creating a backbeat via a website – HTML5 – Drum Kit.)

Amelia's moment in time Term 2

The Magic Library

I see a huge library, I go inside and it is really cool in there. I see thousands and thousands of books everywhere. I need a history book and a book of my choice. I start walking to the history section and it is bigger than my bedroom and that is just one section. I find a book that I think is perfect for my assignment. I grab the book and there is a blue button attached to the wall. I push the button because it isn’t red so it should be fine. I step back and then the bookcase opens. I am shocked and surprised. I have never seen something so amazing.

I feel nervous. My hands are sweaty and sticky. My heart is beating super fast. I see a staircase and it spirals up the building. I feel like I should go up there but then I also feel like I should stay here. I decide to go up and I look behind me to see how many steps I had climbed. I had only gone up ten steps and that was nearly halfway. My legs ache. I am huffing and puffing. I see a bright gold light glistening in the sunlight. I start to sprint and I forget all about my legs. I am on the second to top step and that is when I drop my books and land on the top step lying on my back. I am clutching onto my leg in pain. I close my eyes and start moaning and groaning. I open my eyes and I see a boy standing there waiting to help me up. He helps me up and I ask him what is in the room with the gold light coming out of it. He tells me that it is a secret room and I was invited to come in.

I hear the door knob click as he opens the door. He introduces himself his name is Gregorio. I introduce myself and tell him my name is Rosita.  I hear our footsteps as we walk into the room. I look around and I see gadgets and the newest technology. I am so excited. I ask “ who owns all of this stuff?” “ I do, you can have a couple of things if you want. I was wondering if you would like to work with me as an agent?”.
“YES YES YES I would love to.” I cry  with excitement.

I can smell food. But it isn’t just any food, it was the best and the most delicious food in the whole town. I can smell pies, chocolate cake and cookies. I can smell pizza and it was my very favourite, meat lovers. I see the food and there is also a huge red velvet cupcake sitting on the table. I grab a plate and start to cover it with the food. I take a big bite out of the red velvet cupcake and it is delicious.


I can taste the fresh icing melting into my mouth. I can taste the amazing taste of cake and sprinkles. I love cake. The food is the best I’ve ever had in my entire life time so far. I stuff my face. I keep eating and eating until I am full and feel sick. I can believe I am going to be an agent. I can’t wait to start.

Bikes and helmets, the nervous students, the cones, the bags, and even the supporters of students.
My friends, my classmates and I did what kids do -  
Daphne’s legs were going up and down like the needle on a sewing machine,
My Legs struggled to keep up with the pedals,
People huffed and puffed like the wind,
Butterflies rushed around in people’s stomachs full of nervousness,
Hearts pumped blood around bodies ferociously,
Butterflies disappeared and happiness replaced it
Doing a sigh of relief

Multicultural week blogpost

This week I have participated actively in a range of learning experience around ‘Multicultural week’


WHAT: I was involved in a range of learning experiences for Multicultural week. I did spring origami snowflakes and I learnt how to use chopsticks. I also got henna on my right hand. I also learnt about Israel and Russia.
SO WHAT:
I learnt that in Russia there is a building that was built from wood and doesn’t have any nails in it and that it has been there for centuries and it hasn’t been damaged or knocked down.

I enjoyed learning about the different cultures in the school. I also enjoyed getting the henna on my hand.

I was most fascinated by the coldest temperature in Russia, it  is -71°. When it is that cold if you have a bucket of water and you chuck the water over the balcony or out of the window it instantly turns into snow.

NOW WHAT
A question I have is…. How many people are from countries other than New Zealand in the school?

Statistics

WALT Follow the statistical inquiry cycle and conduct my own investigation

Conclusion:

The majority of the year 6 Hub’s most popular sport to play is Soccer/ Football with 22 people.
In second was other with 20 people.

The third most popular was netball with 8 people, then rugby with 6 and the least popular sport was Basketball with 3 people.

CARE values

I know how to show my CARE values in the classroom. I think we have CARE values at Oaklands School because  then the children can earn care ticks for doing good things and so that the children can earn their bronze, silver and gold CARE certificates. I think the most important classroom value is Be aware of others. Here is a picture of me showing that value.


Integrated Learning

WALT describe ideas about school design.
The school idea I am presenting is a silent room.
I am presenting this by making a model.
I think the school should use this idea because It is great for learning space.
