The Ancient Olympics

The Olympics began over two and a half thousand years ago in ancient Greece. In those days Greece was made up of several different states including Athens, Sparta, and Corinth and they were often at war with each other but when the games were on the held a truce.

This great event was held at a place called Olympia and this is why the games are called the Olympics they were held once every four years in honor of Zeus lord of all the Gods. Eventually the ancient Olympic were abolished by the roman emperor Theodosus the first who was a Christian and didn’t like the games because they were dedicated to a pagan God but the Olympics were always remembered as a symbol of human achievement and peace.

My Dream Bedroom

This is my dream bedroom stack. Hope you enjoy.

6 Thinking Hats

How I feel about my artwork or the whole process.

Creating my artwork I felt really proud because when I got home I told my mum and dad all about my painting and they were really proud of me. I’m  also proud because it took us all four weeks to get our painting’s finished and perfect and that's what I did.
What did I enjoy most of all or what was the best thing about my painting.
I loved painting the most because I got to see all of the lovely neon paint on my picture. I also got to switch colours when I was finished with the first two colours that I used.
What did I find hard or I didn’t like.
The hardest thing was when I saw something little I tried to paint inside but I kept going out of the lines. I also tried not to miss any spots on my picture to paint.
How can I do my art better next time?
Next time I could look back at my painting and think about all of the detail and draw that the next time. I also could do different building instead of the same buildings over and over again.
What was the most interesting thing I did or my friends did.
The class used paint but Eden used dye because her detail was to little. Eden’s picture was still beautiful and it turned out to be really colourful. also everyone's painting was beautiful too.
What did I learn most about?
I learnt how to be patient when the paint  wasn’t free for me to use. Also I learnt how to achieve and participate anywhere you go and in anything you do.

Te Tuhi

First thing in the morning we split in two group and we were off on an adventure in the pouring rain. We were going to Te Tuhi. When we got there we saw heaps of new invented structures that we haven't seen before.

The pavilion had to listen really carefully to Jeremy. We put our bags in a tray and were off. First we walked past a little daycare, second we walked past an art class, at last we were at our art space.

We were making dream houses made with three shapes. The shapes were equilateral triangles, isosceles triangles and squares. After that we out lined our dream houses with a black vivid.

Soon after we finished outlining our dream houses we drew some super cool things inside some shapes. After making our dream houses we went into this dark room and watched a screen where it showed some flower pots that were inside the dark room. Afterwards we went into another dark room with another screen.

With excitement the half pavilion walked into this the dark room and saw people that were making metal things. When it was over we went and said thank-you to Jeremy and we went back on the bus and went back to school and had our morning tea.

Fia Fia

When the kapa haka group was just about to walk on the stage I had butterflies in my stomach. I felt so nervous, when we started to sing I got caught up in the moment and I was confident that second.

While waiting on the cold hard ground I could hear the thumping music while watching the rock band. I kept vibrating when the rock band made a sound. The noise swept my group and me away with a magical swish. When the Samoan  group went up on the stage I saw some of my classmates, I was cheering and clapping till there performance was finished.  

The Colosseum

The Colosseum was built 70 years after Jesus was born, now the Colosseum is 2000 years old. The Colosseum is a very ancient amphitheater in Rome Italy. Inside, the Colosseum had seating for more than 50,000 spectators.

The Colosseum has bits and pieces that have broken down because Rome Italy had an earthquake. In Rome there is about like 3.9 visitor to see the Colosseum. From  2000 years ago the Colosseum is still standing.

Dust Mite

I learnt how to get  dust mites out of my house, dust mites are 0.3 miller meters long, they hide in your bed room and in you soft toys, they have  8 legs, they aren't insects, the first time person who saw a dust mites was antoni van Leeuwenhoek and he invented a microscope.



One morning Tamarereti was feeling hungry so he went fishing. Tamarereti got three large fish and decided to go back home but he noticed that the wind had died down so there was no way to get back to land. Tamarereti thought there was enough time to have a nap for the wind return, so he a little nap.

The wind pushed Tamarereti and the waka all the way to the other side of the lake. When Tamarereti woke up it was getting dark he knew that he was is big trouble. Tamarereti’s  tummy was still grumbling so he cooked himself some fish. Tamarereti  was thinking how to get back to land without getting eaten by the taniwha.

While Tamarereti was eating his fish he found shining pebbles and threw as many pebbles inside his waka. Tamarereti pushed his waka in the lake and threw the shining pebbles into the sky so he wouldn't get eaten by the taniwha. Tamarereti’s plan had worked and he got to the land safely.

After Tamarereti’s long day he fell straight to sleep. When Tamarereti woke up he had a visitor, it was Ranginui. Tamarereti thought that he was in big  trouble for messing up Ranginui's dark sky he knew he was going to be punished for good but instead Ranginui said “Thank-you Tamarereti you have made the land and our people much safer.”

Rotational symmetry

This means that…
It’s in order and can rotate 8 times or more, also it looks the same on each pedal.

In my garden my butterfly has…
Reflective symmetry

This means that...
It looks the same on each side.

In my garden my pathway shows…

To make my pathway I…
Need to tessellate my hexagons or other shapes.  I used translation to move my hexagons.

This means that…
I need to fill in all the gaps.  The shapes are all the same.
