River Talks

Today we went to the River talks in Auckland, Glenn Innes. We there with 9KRO. The River talks were close to the school so we walked to the River talks. The other school that were there was, Point England, Glenn Taylor and Te Kura Kaupapa Maori O Puau Te MoanaNuia A Kiwa. We went to the river talks because we needed to clean the creeks and save the animal sea life in the river.

We watched cultural performances. We saw a Tongan group singing about the river and how we can save it. There was also a Cook Island group and a Maori group who also talked about the river and how to clean it.

Kiwi Sport

Today we played Touch for our Kiwi Sport. Our coach didn't teach us that much because some of my classmates didn't focus and was not listening to the coach. We played two games. First we played a game where everyone has to stand in a circle and pass 10 or 9 balls around the circle clockwise. Who ever touched the ball had to run around the park fast so we could play some more. The second game we played was Touch, but we changed the rules a bit. We were aloud to pass after getting touched, we were aloud to kick anytime.

We practised playing the ball and passing it back to the the person who got touched. We also learned how to play the ball and quickly so we could get back. Some of the people didn't get back quick enough, so we taught them.

We really had fun playing Touch and learning new skills about Touch.

Maths

Today we had a very confusing geometry lesson. I had two partners to work with. It was Mateaki and Alfred. We worked on maths problem called Carries Cubes. Each side had 9 smaller squares. There was 6 sides. We had work on these questions below. We got the answers. We solved it by drawing dots to make sure everything was right.

How many of the original small cubes have:

  1. three faces painted red = 8

  1. two faces painted red = 12

  1. one face painted red = 6

  1. no faces painted red = 1

This is a photo of Alfred, Mateaki and Me working out the problems.


Glenbrae Kids

Today room 7 went to the Glenbrae. We walked there with cool books so we could read to them. When we got there, there was a lot of little kids. Some of the kids were happy, naughty, playful and shy. My kid that I chose to stay with, was Brittney. Brittney was one of the naughty kids but I still liked her even though she was running away from us and hiding from me. Brittney didn't want to read a book because she was to young. I was about to read her the book Astarons. Sadly when we were playing we had to leave because we had to go back to school. She was still happy because she had a new friend Tati.

Abstract Art



The Abstract painters took a picture of the real photo and added different colours to make it hard to find. Some people actually don't need to get a photo and draw over it. They start drawing abstract art from scratch. Here is an example of what Abstract painting is.  This was the first abstract art created by Wassily Kandinsky.

Where did Abstract Art come from ?
Abstract art originally came from Europe but the person who drew the first Abstract painting came from Russia. Abstract painting was made during the late 1900s.

You colour different boxes with different colours, that's how the original art was hard to find. The first examples or abstract art was made during the 19th century and the 20th century.
