Cross Country

On Tuesday the 30th of August we did cross country I raced in the 10 year olds' race and I
came 1st.After we had cross country I was kinda puffed out but I still got up and continued to clap on the others while they crossed the line. I ran 5 laps around the field. I was bummed that we didn't race at Minogue  park because I was training for a while getting my strength up in my legs but it was cancelled due to weather.

Flox Art Reflection

1 The process we went though was getting our materials. We got some plates and cardboard sheets then we traced around the plate to make a circle for our native New Zealand animal and we cut it out and then we had a stencil. Then we got  our cardboard circle out and sponged the background and when it was done we got the stencil of our animal and then we sponged that down on the cardboard  and added some leaves and then we were done.


2 The easiest part was sponging the stencils down because you don`t have to be careful sponging it.



3 The most difficult thing was cutting the animal out because it was so hard not to cut the animal.



4 The thing I like about my piece is the colours and stencils that I chose because they make it pop!!.



5 The thing I would changen about my Flox Art is my animal because it didn`t fit in with my colours.

Collaboration

1.Our biggest focus of this term was collaboration.

2.My favourite activity was marshmallows and the spaghetti challenge we got eight marshmallows and a bag of dried spaghetti
and we had make a sculpture together we made a rocket ship with a spaghetti river and a car.

3.I enjoyed it because we got to design together and touch and snap the dried spaghetti sticks and make cool sculptures.

4.My favourite role was Media specialist  because I got to speak and explain what we had done with our activity.

5.The most difficult role for me was police officer because it was a bit hard to get everyone to do the right thing sometimes.
