Arts Blog Week 9 Term 3
This term Kiri talked about taking a money shot around the school and which money shot is the heart of Waimairi School.
So Tejas and I took some photos in Te Puna.
We took some photos in that class because we thought it would be a great idea of the kids helping each other and working together.
Tejas said to me that he had took a money shot that was the heart of Waimairi School.
It was the perfect money shot we took.
So we went to Kiri to check this photo out, and Kiri said it was a good money shot.
Overall I think the photo we took was the heart of Waimairi School.
Arts Blog Week 8 Term 3
This term our teacher talked about being a fly on the wall around the
I looked for someone that can be my partner, and it was Tejas. I asked where we want to be a fly on the wall. He said to go to the library. That was such a good idea! So I asked Kate what Fran’s email was. She told me and I emailed Fran.
When I opened up the mail app in my iPad I found an email, it was Fran. She said when. So we decided to go to the library at Wednesday. Fran said okay but she wasn't on the library on Wednesdays.
So we decided to pick a day. Tejas said how about Thursday at 2:00. I said ok.
It was nearly 2:00. I wanted to finish ESOL now. As soon as we finished ESOL we completely went to the Library.
We took some photos inside the library.
Overall I think that the library was messy on Thursday.
Arts Blog Week 8 Term 3
This term Nicky (ESOL Teacher) told us to get 15 English greetings and Farewells and translate it into our own language.
When we finished writing 15 greetings and farewells Nicky told us where we were going write it on or stick it on something. I said to Nicky that I'm going make a pyramid made by paper and write the words in each sides.
When I was making the pyramid, it started to go very well. When Nicky saw it, she said good job. I was very proud when I found this idea because all the ideas I had in my head, those didn't work very well.
Arts Blog Week 7 Term 3
This term Grace and Jessie made a talent show. It was so much fun watching the people do their own talent.
Some people were Singing, Dancing, Making a paper airplane blindfolded and comedy.
The contestant that I liked was Gabby because when she went in front and everyone was cheering for her but she said she couldn't do it. She cried and went to the judges which were Kiri and Kate. Kiri said if she wanted a second try, and Gabby said ok. When the other contestant finished, Gabby went in front again and did it.
Arts Blog Week 6 Term 3
This term our class made Calendar Art. We had to choose between 3 choices and these were Silhouette, Collage and
I chose to make mine with the silhouette because I thought it would be much easier to glue the coloured paper on the fully A4 paper.
The things I wanted to glue in the paper was sports, so I picked the my favourite sports and I decided to sketch them out and when I finished sketching it I would colour it fully black.
I was very proud of myself when I finished my calendar art.
This was mine.
Arts Blog Week 5 Term 3
This term we shared our speeches with the whole class.
My heart was beating so fast because I was so scared that really didn't want to do it.
When I got calmer my heart didn't beat that fast like before and I was ready to do it because last year I didn't do it.
When my name was called I courageously said my speech to all the people in my class. I was very happy when I finished because I faced my fears.
Arts Blog Week 4 Term 3
This term we've been doing Music, Dance and Drama.
The activity I did was music. The people that were working with me were Isaac D, Hamish G and Ethan F.
We explored and found some things that have sound when smacked.
The things we got were Spoons, Glass, Plastic Bottles, Containers, Drumsticks and Folders.
We were the first to perform it with all the people that were in the music group.
Overall I think our group went well with our music we made up.
Arts Blog Week 3 Term 3
This term our class took a photo for the moment in time.
The moment in time I picked was me climbing up the tree outside the quad area.
I chose it because I wanted to look like a kangaroo looking upside down.
This was me climbing a tree.
Art Blog Week 1 Term 3
In our class we all went to the Art Gallery, Margaret
Mahy Playground, Dance O Mat but unfortunately the Dance O Mat was shut down so we couldn't dance and many more places.
I really enjoyed going there because I missed going to the Margaret Mahy Playground and it was my first time going inside the Art Gallery.
In the playground my favourite slide was the Spiral Slide, where you have to get up top and when you go down the slide there’s fast acceleration when going down and a lot of turnings. Like a waterslide.
In the Art Gallery there was really good artworks, sculptures and many more! The art making I loved was the Goldfish in the Aquarium using its fins to swim, 3D artworks, The Bull and the Piano
Sculpture, and the Tyre Swing when you go inside the Art Gallery on the right.
The forces I gathered in the Margaret Mahy Playground was in the Metal Slide it was so fast that it accelerated even more faster than before and same as the flying fox it's all about the acceleration when going down.
Next time I would like to visit the Margaret Mahy Playground and enjoy the different playgrounds that is fun to play!
