Over these last two weeks we have been working on war themed silhouette paintings. The students had to use tonal modelling to create the sunset. Then used a stencil to trace onto some black paper. We had to cut out the silhouette carefully to ensure the detail was not lost. These silhouette paintings were based on the poem written by Robert Laurence Binyon "For the Fallen".

Today we visited Auckland Zoo. It was a trip for the students in Years 0-6. It was a free trip. Our Zoo admission and bus ride was sponsored by the Warehouse and Ritches Buses. At the start we walked round the zoo. We checked out Pridelands and saw the African animals. Then we did the Orangutan trail. At 12:30pm we met our guide Laura who took us on the exotic tour. On our tour we saw the Orangutans, Spider Monkeys, Galapagos Tortoises, lizards and the tigers. As we were in the tiger viewing area, a female tiger called Molique sat right up against the glass. It was incredible. It felt as if she was waiting for us to greet up. A fantastic experience.

Dance Reflection Term 1: The day the Treaty of Waitangi was signed.
I think I should learn about Mountain performance, River performance, Tree performance, Dancing skills, Tap dancing and Freeze stage.
I think Mrs Eeles Dance performance will be pretty fun to perform on the stage.
I used my arms as the wave and my feet to make a very tall and high mountain.
We done our dance moves smoothly and carefully for our own performance.
I do it 3 times in a row so 3 dance moves will be much better at dance moves and singing loud enough to get the perfect performance.
Aung Naing's Mintie wrapper was the longest because his wrapper was 100 centimetres and he tore his wrapper carefully.
Aiden's Mintie wrapper was 14 centimetres long. His one was the shortest because he rushed and he didn't listen.
Sky and Sharon had the same Minties wrapper length. Their wrappers were 35 centimetres long.
