Ancient Olympics

The Olympics begin over 2 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 at each other. But when the games were on they held a truse. This great event was held in a place called Olympia this is why the games are called the Olympics. They a held once every four years of honour of Zeus the god 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 there were dedicated to a pagan god. But the Olympics were always remeber as a symbol of human achievement and peace.

My geometry garden by amira

In my garden my flowers have rotation symmetry.

This means that when you rotate your flowers they are the same on each which means it’s a order.

In my garden my butterfly has reflective symmetry.

This means that if you have or had a butterfly the patterns on it’s wings would be the same.

In my garden my pathway shows tessellation.

To make my pathway I used tessellation

This means that when you have heaps of the same shapes and you put them together they have no gaps in between them.

Purple tastes like grape smoothie
Purple sounds like grapes squishing
Purple smells like the morning air as we breathe  it.
Purple feels like grapes
Purple looks like purple paint
Purple is Miss King's favorite colour and the best!!

6 Thinking Hats by Amira

6 Thinking Hats
How I feel about my artwork or the whole process.
Creating my artwork made me feel proud and frustrated because I did lots of mistakes but I also managed to fix my mistakes.   Going through the process was so frustrating and it made me feel angry because the process took so long it was so boring.
What did I enjoy most of all or what was the best thing about my painting.
The most interesting thing i enjoyed was the peace and quiet while the pavillon painted because it was so super quiet it’s never this quiet in the pavillon. I also enjoy the drawing my picture it might not the same as on my topic book but it still kinda looks the same it’s similar.
What did I find hard or I didn’t like.
What i didn’t like about my picture was the paint i used too much of one color and not enough of the other colors.   When i noticed that was when we were taking the last picture of them i just then did not like it.
How can I do my art better next time?
I should not use so much purple and not enough of yellow,green, pink and orange.   Next time i paint i well wait for the wet paint to dry then I well not paint near or on it.
What was the most interesting thing I did or my friends did.
The most interesting thing I did was draw cloud windows and draw clouds a sun and stars it is interesting and so super wired.     And also I did only two trees out of the whole entire picture the wired.
What did I learn most about?
I learnt that you should never paint when you are going to paint near paint that is wet it is bad because it looks yucky when it’s dry. I have also that painting doesn’t take short period of time.
