Ancient Olympics

The Olympics began over two and a half thousand years ago in ancient Greece. In those days Greece was made up of several different states including Athens, Sparta and Corinth and they were often at war with each other. But when the games were on they held a truce. This great event was held at a place called Olympia and this is why the games are called the Olympics.

They were held once every four years in  honour of Zeus, lord of all the Gods. Eventually the ancient Olympics were abolished by the Roman Emperor Theodosus the First who was christian and didn’t like the games because they were dedicated to a pagan God. But the Olympics were always remembered as a symbol of human achievement and peace.

Pavilion Swimming

Under the water at the Glen Innes swimming pools on a Monday, me and my class had to learn how to swim. Diving into warm water I freestyle back and forth to the island and back. I love to swim because it is good for my safety at the beach or in a deep pool.

My Trip to Te Tuhi

First thing in the Morning we split into two groups. The First Group that went got on the bus to Te Tuhi didn’t make that much noise, when the first group got to Te Tuhi we lined up in two lines to go inside. As soon as we walked in Te Tuhi there was a metal Teepee and there was a smoke machine that made fake smoke. While Jeremy the man that took us to the Art Gallery. Our task was to make a flying house, with only two shapes Squares and three sorts of Triangles.

Edens Geomentry Garden

In my garden my flowers have Rotational Symmetry

This means that when you rotate your object it will have an order of 4 and it will look the same.

In my garden my butterfly has Reflective Symmetry

This means that when you look at both of the wings they will look the same. The other thing is that a butterfly has a line of  Symmetry in between the two wings such as other objects.

In my garden my pathway shows Tessellation

To make my pathway I used Triangles

This means that when you repeat the same shape you get a pattern. Tessellation is repeating shapes to make a pattern that have no gaps

My Dream Bedroom

The 6 Thinking Hats

How I feel about my artwork or the whole process.
Creating my artwork work was loads  of fun at first I had to draw on my Maths Book then we had to copy it off all our ideas on a big piece of pap. In the middle of the whole process I felt frustrated because my detail was too small to paint, so I dyed instead.
What did I enjoy most of all or what was the best thing about my painting.
The thing I enjoyed the most about my painting is that even though my detail was small. But I still got through all those challenges about my painting.
What did I find hard or I didn’t like.
The thing I didn’t like about my painting was that I didn’t get to paint I had to dye.
The other thing I didn’t quite enjoy was that my painting took for qutie a long time.
How can I do my art better next time?
The thing I can do better is keeping my detail a lot bigger. The other thing I found hard was my outlines, in my picture there are small smudges that ruins the picture.  
What was the most interesting thing I did or my friends did.
The most interesting thing in my piece of art is that I put the Colosseum, London Eye, Eiffel Tower, The Great Wall of China and the London Clock in my picture. I did these buildings because throughout this term we have been learning all about important buildings around the world.
What did I learn most about
The thing I learnt most about my painting is to not give up when you are stuck. The other thing I learnt about my painting is to follow your insticts.
