Koru Art

My goal is to create artist inspired artwork
I learn to draw a koru by raven Harris video and designs Maori designs.

First we looked at Raewyn Harris's work. Then we had to look at the colour wheel and pick out colours that worked together. Next we tried on a scrap peace of paper different colours that would go together. After that we started our chalk draft on A4 paper and we had to do koru designs and lines if you wanted to do them. Then we had to do our big A3 drawing and you had to copy it off your A4 copy and you had to have the chalk lines thick or else the dye wouldn't sink into the chalk lines and they would not be bold enough

My next step is to get some of the chalk lines thicker.

·    To compose and create a rap (with beat if possible) about bullying
How did you go about achieving this? quite good because I had heaps of rhyming words.

What resources were used to help you? laptop paper and a pen

Did you go through the process on your own or collaborate with other people? I collaborated with other people

How did you find the process? It was fun because I was able to make my own rap.

What did you enjoy most about the process of creating a rap? I enjoyed creating a beat for the rap using html5 drum kit.

What  might be your next step? My next step would be to write a longer rap.
Bullying rap

I wake up in the morning don't want to go to school When I look at the bullies they think they're cool

When I look at the bullies I always have to plea
Why can't you let me be free

I walked up to the bullies and I asked them why
When all they do is answer they make me cry

When I look at the bullies they make me sad
I walk away cause I'm feeling mad

Why is it that I have to feel fear
Why do they want to give me a scare

Every time they call me names I know it's wrong
When all I want to do is to stand and feel strong


WALT solve division problems using an algorithm

1. How many 8's go in to 9?
2. How many 8's go in to 6?

I asked how many 8's go into 96 and my answer was 12.

My next learning step is to Solve problems using simple square numbers and can draw what they represent and make a table to show the pattern numerically.

measurement goal

my goal is find perimeters/areas of common shapes. Which means calculating the sides.

Image result for square perimeter and area
