My Career

In Week 8, Room 7 had Career week. I had to choose what Career 
Pathway I wanted for when I grow up. I chose to be a 
Painter/Artist. A Painter or and Artist, is a person who paints as 
a form of self-expression.

I chose to be a Painter/Artist because I hear my friends and 
family say that my artwork is good. And, you can express your 
feelings and thoughts through art. Sometimes artists want to 
express their feelings and thoughts, so they put their feelings 
and thoughts in their art, like Edvard Munch. Edvard was 
the one that painted, 'The Scream of Nature'.

One evening, I was walking along a 
path, the city was on one side and the 
fjord below. I felt tired and ill. I stopped 
and looked out over the fjord the sun 
was setting, and the clouds turning 
blood red. I sensed a scream passing 
through nature; it seemed to me that
I heard the scream. I painted this picture, 
painted the clouds as actual blood.

The subjects that you need to take in college and university is 
Art History, as well as the techniques. Art School can help
you with all of that.

The first thing you need to do to become famous 
is to be an artist. How? YOU MAKE ART. The best 
place to start creating is in a sketchbook. 
Be willing to display your artwork anywhere. If you 're 
family and friends think your artwork is good, market 
your artwork. Someday you might be as famous as 
Pablo Picasso!

To me, Art isn't hard. It's not like studying for a test.
Painting is like being in a whole new world. 
You can have fun with it. Sometimes when you want 
to market your artwork you need peace and quiet.

R.E. Reflection

In Religious Education, I learnt a lot about Francis of Assisi. 
I know.......
*He's real name is Giovanni Francesco. His mother named him 'Giovanni' but his father didn't like the name. So he called him Francesco (Francis).
*Back when Francis was alive people teased him because he didn't have a wife and kids.
*Animals obeyed him.          *He cared about the environment
*He received the stigmata, making the first person.   
*He died in a church while listening to a Psalm.          
What I like about Francis of Assisi is that he cares for the environment. I respect him for that

Maths Reflection

In Maths I enjoyed learning the Units of Measurement. I know that 1 litre = 100000 millilitres and I know how to order capacities in litres and millilitres, for example......
5mL    250mL     0.75L     1L     1.5L     1250mL     50L     


Piha Mill Camp

Three days in Piha Mill Camp were the best. It was like being in Heaven. The only thing you can hear is birds, the swaying of trees and hear people whispering saying ‘Oh! Let’s prank him/her’. I was never homesick because I had my little sister with me.

I like the way we all came together in the Lounge Room. We reflected and talked about things that happened at camp. If we can have the confidence to talk about how we felt, then we can have the confidence to show-off our talent, not hide it.

What really made me burst out laughing was watching the Fashion show. It was like watching ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’.

My Reflection

In Week 2, we had asttle tests. There was Star Test, Reading, Maths and Writing. The Reading test was hard, especially question 2 and the last 2 pages of the test. The Maths test was easy except for questions that included decimals and percentage. I’ve made some progress but I’m not happy with it.
