City Trip


On Monday the 20th the year 5 hub went to the city to about the history of the city.

Something that was interesting was the art gallery because there were a lot of paintings/sculptures that were, really creative and that I have never seen before.

Something that I learnt was that Billy Apple taped a red line in the middle, of a curved bridge to make it easier to walk across.

On Tuesday and Wednesday we had Kauri Athletics.
A challenge I faced on Athletics day was discus, because I had no practice, and I didn't have any expreiance at discus.
My favourite event on the day was high jump, because I didnt think I was good at high jump, and when it was my turn I was worried that wouldn't, get over the bar, but i tried my best and after my turn, it was actually really fun jumping over, bars.

Availll Reading


Availll is going great so far.

The thing i like the best about Availll is that we get to watch movies and learn the the same time.

For this activity, I drew pictures to match the
movie scenes, in the boxes.

I worked with Neeve and Julie.

The thing I enjoyed most about this learning was making the movie.

Something I learnt about Myths and Legends is myths and legends are a way to tell stories of how something is created.

Art Attack

Art Attack Blog, Week 5, term 3 22 / 8 / 17


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, midground 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.

  • I learnt that you can put your water colour on a wet paper if you want to blend it in.
  • We included features such as flax, trees, mountains, lakes, hills, buildings, paddocks.
  • technique i used put water on water so the water colours can blend in together more.
  • I enjoyed painting with water colours because it was a new experience for me.
  • i am proud of my sky that i did because i blended some red yellow and orange together.
  • i found difficult filling in my waterfall with water colour because it was really skinny.

  • I would like to try pastel if I did another landscape because it would be much better to blend colours.
I would like to get better at showing midground.
