2014 Reflection

This year been very crazy from moving to three class to having more children in our class! Overall I have kind of liked our class. The reason why i did not like this year is because it didn't feel like a class because in our last term we combined with another intermediate class and it is way too big! Another reason why i did like it is because I got to be in the same class as my friends.

I think this year I have been alright with working habits but I can do better. Although this year has been crazy I have enjoyed most of the year. I would like to thank my lovely teachers Mr Barks and Mrs Nua!

Athletics 2014

Waking up in the morning, I wasn't sure if athletics was going to be on or not. Until... I was told that it was after morning tea! I was so not ready for athletics! But ... It was going to be the last one for me as a year 8.

Our first event was discus we sat in the hot sun waiting for our turn, meanwhile Ms Tito taught us a dance. It was my turn to throw I slowly but carefully aimed where I wanted to throw the discus, I was focused and ready. I threw the discus, like an olympic athlete about to win gold. My throw was at least 10 meters.

The day continued with lots of events my favorite one was shot put and tug of war. although I was very tired I gave my best effort, and got the results I wanted. I cant wait to get to college to compete with people older than me.

This year our year eights from Point England school had the opportunity to go to Marsden Bay Christian Camp. On the very first day of camp we stopped for a long hike that took at least 2 hours. Sweat rushing down my face I stopped and admired the beautiful view right in front of me. By the time we finished the hike I couldn't feel my legs at all! we arrived to the camp sight. I was so tired by that time, we finally unpacked everything and headed straight to our cabins Lucky enough I got to sleep with my mates. Overall I didn't really think i was going to like camp. But in the end I did!

The first day ended, In our cabin I couldn't get enough sleep because my friend Jacob was right next to me and we kept talking for the rest of the night. I couldn't wait for the next day.

"Wake up" "Wake up" I heard It was my friend waking me up, I was very tired on the next day. Our first activity was Frisbee Golf we all had three chances to get the Frisbee inside the hoop it took four tries for me to finally get it in. My favorite camp activity was kayaking.

Tapa Pattern

For the last few weeks we have been working on tapa patterns. They look really nice we all had the chance to create one. My one is based on a traditional Tongan pattern that was created a long time ago. We got to dye our art to make the effect look original and old. What we used were... Brown paper bags. Brown and black crayons. Brown dye and pencil. Our first task was to find a pattern that we were going to use. The outcome of mine was very good I really liked it I hope we get to create more art during this term.  

Robyn Lamont

Today we have been working with Robyn Lamont she does line art and shapes. We all had the opportunity to work with her. She does amazing work. My friends and I all sat on the same desk where we got lessons how to make our art better.

My artwork was alright I think i couldn't done better with it because I wasn't concentrating. I cant wait till we get another lesson from her.

Tangle Art

This week we have been creating a piece. This artwork is interesting because there is no beginning and no end. My teacher chose this particular artwork because this term we have combined our class with another class and it would be a great way to start the term with art.

We first searched up a pattern to draw when we all had a day to finish our paper.

Ms Paget gave each of us a piece of paper that had lines. The only instructions we were given was to create a pattern, it could be any kind of pattern. I have created mine and the outcome of it is very good. I cant wait to learn more and create more of our art.

There was a lot of research that went into the process. Finding a unique pattern was a little bit difficult
