Cross Country

I ran in the 9 yr olds' race 
I felt really aching and tired.
I ran 4 laps around the field,that converts to 1500 meters! Phew!
I
 felt kinda sad we didn't go to minoe park because it looks really cool there.

The Wacky Olympics Newscast

On Friday 19th August 2016 the Wacky Olympics took place At Vardon Stadium (School)
Let's go over there now, over to you Sam. 
"Yes i'm here at the Vardon Stadium and it seems that there are some straws, paper plates, counters and hand prints on the floor, obviously the remains of the events of the Wackies well the counters are the coin toss paper plate discus because of the plates hand prints because of the wheelbarrow race and straws are the straw javelin. Room 14 played for Swaziland and a representative from
Swaziland was the torchbearer and did a relay! They won loads of medals too!"
"Sounds interesting Sam that's all the time we have, Bye!"

My Clay Sculpture

My clay sculpture is a man holding a sign that says "cool".

My Sculpture's name is "Best Way", I want  people to see that it represents every one is cool in their
 own special way.

My favourite part in making the clay is using the garlic press to make hair.

The hardest part was making the body stick the legs because it is wide and heavy.

Flox ArtWork Reflection

1. We cut out stencils from paper that Mrs Gunn printed out with animals. I choose a Tuatara.

then we used sponges with paint on onto the blank piece of paper with our animal stencils.

2.The easiest part was using the painted sponges to paint through the stencils on the paper because all we had to do is dab on to the other piece of paper

3. It was difficult to cut out the animals stencils we had chose because you had to follow the lines carefully

 4.I like the flax bush on my artwork because i used lots of the same stencil which I think looks cool

5.if I could do this again would paint the background lime because want my back ground to make the things in the front to make it more vibrant

Collaboration

The Tallest Tower

Our biggest plan this term is trying to collaborate.
My favourite team building activity is when we were trying to build the tallest tower we could,
we had to try make the tallest tower with sugar paper and tape and anything else we thought would help us.
I enjoyed this one because it was a simple instruction that we could do easily.
I think i did media specialist the best because I presented the project very clearly.
The role that was the hardest to do was the police officer because the group was very hard to control.`
