Art Attack

WALT create artist inspired artwork.

Artist: Raewyn Harris
This is my Koru Art

At the start of Art Attack week we were given a piece of paper to do colours of blending and colours that go with each other. Colours that go with each are called complementary colours. After that we made our 1st draft in pencil and we did our planning on there. Then we made our 2nd draft in pencil for a different planning. Once we have chosen our colours and what plan we did we did our 3rd/chalk draft and put in the colours as well. Here is a photo of the chalk draft.

After that when we dyed it we went onto our good copy on Wednesday.  We did the chalk first, I did it in the pink chalk because it stands out. After we did the chalk we coloured it in. It was pretty challenging to get the colours in between the chalk lines because the crayons we used were very thick. Once we are all finished we dye the art and it will turn out amazing.

So what?
If I was to complete another piece of artwork I would put in more patterns instead of block colours.


·    To compose and create a rap (with beat if possible) about bullying
How did you go about achieving this? Working hard and collaborating because I have been working really hard on creating my rap and also collaborating to get new ideas to create the rap.
What resources were used to help you? Learner Zone because it had a lot of answers that helped me on my rap, and Mr McCallum himself.
Did you go through the process on your own or collaborate with other people? Collaborating with others because working alone can be easy but you need to know all the answers.
How did you find the process? Easy and hard because some bits of the rap we couldn't get right and the easy bits were getting some choruses down that ended with easy rhyming words.
What did you enjoy most about the process of creating a rap? Getting parts of the rap perfect because we can get onto lots of exciting and fun choruses.

What might be your next step? Get the whole rap finished and sounds perfect because we don't want to read it out loud to everyone when it actually doesn't make sense.
Beat Box

Name Of The Song
Dark And Light

Don’t be a bully just spread the plea       
We don’t like people victims just let them be

We know Mr Bully, we know everything
You may be my friend now but you hurt me everywhere

Give Me An M an R an B an U an L an L and a Y
Mr Bully
We don’t like it at all

Dark And Light we choose light
But you Mr Bully, you may choose but you ain’t no friend
Try to be the one who’s polite

We know how you started it
Your one who's afraid
Don’t be bully be a friend
Or your gonna be in thinking spot
To Be Continued

(We looked at what is Hip Hop and the 4 elements of it. We watched some rap videos on bullying. We were given an environmental rap in groups and had to learn and perform it. We looked at how rap is composed, and wrote some rhyming couplets about school. We were given a page of rhyming words that could be used and started the process of creating a rap. We were given ideas for creating a back beat via a website – HTML5 – Drum Kit

Multiplication And Division

WALT: Use a broad range of strategies to solve multiplication and division problems.

My goal is to work my way up to division on XtraMath and on worksheets. On multiplication I need to achieve my 12x tables.

I have learned more on multiplication like 9x6=54, 7x8=56 and 8x6=48.
My next learning step in multiplication and division is to harder on them

WALT solve multiplication using doubling and halving.

Half of  2200=1100
Half of 65=32.5
Double 65=130
Double 255=510 

18 x 4 = 72
9 x 8 = 72
I halve one side and double the other side
Half 18 is 9, Double 4 is 8.

Here is a photo of my working out

In this worksheet here I have been doing multiplication in the thousands column 
For example 
7000x7 7thousandsx7 49 thousands= 49000

On my white board I write down some division answers
For example

Dance Bog Post

We went to our school hall and were guided by a Dance teacher called Dean.
Heres some pictures…

We had two dance routines called hip hop and cha cha. Hip hop is a fast moved dance like jazz.  Cha cha is a slow moved dance where you hold hands with a girl and dance with them. We did a performance on the 2nd friday at about 7:00 PM after dinner. When we arrived we had to go to our classrooms but I had to go to room 7a. That’s because my sister Sophie has her dance before mine so my friends who siblings who are in the year4 hub has to stay in room 7a. When our time was ready we went to our whanau zone room 2. We all got into class lines but girls line on the right and boys line on the left I was in the 2nd in the line in the front. Then when we were all ready we headed off to the school hall and sat down in our line’s and watched the year five’s do their cha cha and hip hop. Next we watched the year 7 and 8’s do their dance and 2nd dance. Then it was our turn we went into the middle of the hall still in our line’s and then the the music started we did our actions for the dance about 3 minutes later it was time to do our cha cha. When our cha cha finished I thought when we were practising our cha cha I thought I just didn’t like it at all but actually it lots of fun. It was time to go home so we headed back home.

Free Writing

WALT write for enjoyment (Free Writing)

Once upon a time there lived a boy called Jason, but everyone called him Jay. He lived in a forest, but it wasn’t a tribe he was in, he was in a medium sized town that was actually very very rich. Most of all he was the richest of them all, he was also the Chief/Master of Underground Town. Everyone loved him, he was the best and greatest of them all. His house was underground and what he had in his room was a double bed, but with no bed on the bottom. He had to pull out a desk on the bottom with some drawers on the bottom as well. His bed was all covered in blue. He had an electric guitar in the left corner of his bedroom. And he had a secret lair behind the desk of his bed, it had a hidden trapdoor. The door led down into where he keeps his money machines that make money for him, he also keeps his inventions in there too and he normally keeps a couple of his special stuff in there because it isn't very big. He has his own garage that he keeps in the back of the house. He has his two cars in there, an Audi R8 and a Zonda R in it and his tools. He has a few rooms that he owns, they are locked up with his passcodes, that only he and his friends know. The first one he keeps his motor racing gear in. His second one has all his music instruments and music gear. The third one he has all his pets in, with loads of water and food in the room. The fourth one he had all his collectables, example: Pokemon cards collections star wars cards. His fifth room he had all his sports gear in etc, his BMX gear and his soccer gear and his league gear and many other sports gear. His sixth one he had all his guns in, like Nerf Guns and actual real guns and just all guns even all his swords, blades, knives, pocket knives, shurikens, grenades, concussions, bombs, and so many others, that was probably his biggest room out of all of them.

His friends were called Tom Hicks, Jody Amby and Finn Thomas. They were all rich, as rich as can be because Jason helped his friends family by giving them the best job lots of money and the best school that didn't cost much and it was huge. That's what made his friends rich.

The story where we don't need to describe everything about him

*Knock Knock* It was Finn, he wanted to play some Zombie Warfare with him. A little moment later Jason opened the door.
“Hi Finn what do you want?” said Jason.
“I was wondering if you wanted to play some more Zombie Warfare with me, Jody and Tom?” asked Finn.
“OK where about?”
“Just at Central Command.”
“Sweet, I'll come meet me at the entrance.”
“Ok!” they both shouted as they went down the street to Central Command. When they were in Central Command the Captain, Captain Smoke was there waiting for them. The reason he was called Captain Smoke is because once when he was fighting he was the best of them all, but then he choked and breathed the smoke. He forgot to put on his smoke mask and he died. But then the army hospital came straight away and had taken him back to the hospital tents and they actually brung him back to life! Now that he was the only one left alive he was now Captain and called Captain Smoke, weird name but it suits him! When he walked us into the gear room he said,
"laser strike guns or other guns?"
“We will have laser strike guns please” they all said. Very well then, he went and got the armour and guns when he came back he had some grenades, fake of course! But when you throw them at the zombies the grenade does a glitchy spark and that’s it exploding and it only does damage to zombies. You can reuse it, so it never useless. When we got into our armour we went into the big door and we were into the zombie zone, there were zombies coming out already and we started to shoot. Jason already got 10 down, well that’s just because he practices and trains for the army as well. 5 minutes later they all were running low on their stamina and energy bullets for the guns, then he noticed that there was a room room. He stepped inside with his friends behind him, he opened the door and he pointed the gun into directions just in case zombies were in there. But instead there was something greater than zombies and more useful and helpful, there were grenades, energy bullets, and concussions that they didn't get given to from the Captain Smoke.

They all got geared up and actually had enough concussions to share about 10 people but they took two each and then they set off and they were killing more zombies. After the hour was up they went back through the way they came in when they were starting. When they exited the Central Command they went out and got an ice cream just for the celebration because they got more zombies than the last one. They always held the record for the most zombies killed. Also the zombies were holographic so you had to wear headsets to see them.

Later on they stopped at Jason's place just to grab the go karts he had in his garage, lying around somewhere. Then they got the helmets and then they went off to a go karting track to practice for their championship go karts derby/rally๐Ÿš“, but they really didn't really need to because they always won, so they just said altogether "let's just do it for fun!๐Ÿ‘" Jason agreed and he also said
"maybe we actually shouldn’t do it this, just so the others can have a turn at winning or at least coming 2nd or 3rd, at least because I always get 1st, and you get 2nd, and you get 3rd, it’s not really fair for them. They can go to the next stage of rallies, but it will harder and harder for them to compete and get first like I did. I actually got more than $5000 worth of fuel for the kart. What a day that was."

After they did their karting at the track they all went to Jason’s house, just to have a nerf war. When they got to Jason's house they got all prepared and got their nerf guns, nerf meeles and their army outfit on. And then they started the war! Finn had the Nerf Mastodon and Tom had the Nerf Modules Lonfire and customised it into a sniper rifle, which actually looked really cool. Next Jody had a Hyper Fire because he likes using the drum mags and it's a battery gun so its automatic shoots five darts a second and he put just a normal sniper scope.
