Art Attack Blog, Week 5, term 3


For art attack my goal was to produce a piece of art related to our local landscape using either paint, water colour or pastel.

With Mrs Marsh I learned about foreground, mid-ground and background in landscapes.
With Mr Forman I learned about colour and complementary colours.
With Mr Rule I looked at the different landscape features of Canterbury and Banks Peninsula.


  • What features you included in your art : I added a few trees in the mid ground and a few birds in the background. i added 2 bushes in the fore ground and some mountains/hills in the background
  • I used pastels to make my art look more realistic and cool.
  • I enjoyed getting to blend in the colours to make a cool pattern
(don’t copy this: Write about some of the following things)

  • I would like to try water colour if I did another landscape because i could blend the colours with all sorts of colours and shades of the colour as well

So What?

I really enjoyed dancing with Dean.

Now what?
I would like to do further dance lessons on hip hop.

I have been learning to solve subtraction problems by using equal additions from a tidy number 

So What?
I have learned that when you have an equation like 73 - 28  = you can either add the same number to both sides, or you can subtract the same number from both sides. 
I have learned that it is easier to make one of the numbers into a tidy number as it is easier to work out the answer.

Now What?
My next step is to use this strategy independently
My next step is to use this strategy with larger numbers

know what different words mean
understand and organise, or order text

My reading teacher is MR Forman. I go to him every Tuesday and Thursday in 5GF.
My writing teacher is MR Rule. We meet in 5IR every week.
