Hey y’all! This week in Art I got closer to finishing my skateboard! As you can all probably tell I have changed from what my design oginally had made.
Now my base colour is blue with hot air balloons all over it. My newest air balloon is aqua that blends down to light blue, also on the other side it’s grey with a quote from my favourite song. It will also have a smaller rainbow air balloon at the top.
I had tons of fun that day, and it’s going to a great cause that will benefit me and also everyone else. Also don’t forget to bring your money in for some great prizes!! I’m going to get the asics drink bottle.
Quite a while ago ( I didn’t get to post this till October..) I sat at a table and introduced myself to many, MANY people! I was talking about social psychology! ” social psychology is all about what goes through your brain when you are put through a civil situation…” I’m pretty sure I said that about 50 times.
Anyway I would tell them about the part of the brain that controls your behaviour in that kind of situation, it’s called the frontal lobe. It’s at the front of your head… pretty self explanatory! Then I would tell my customer about peer pressure, when all of your peers have done the same thing that you feel strained to join.
Soon after that I would tell them about the ASCH experiment. ( it doesn’t stand for anything.) Solomon ASCH conducted a experiment on around 7-8 people. But all except one are actors. They are put through some eye tests where you match up lines. But the kink in it was that everyone else chose the wrong answer. This is an example of peer pressure.
Sorry for posting this so late… comment about what you would do if you were put in a situation like that!
Yesterday the 3-6’s went to a big park and did orienteering. We were TERRIBLE!!! My friend Ella did the map reading and Chelsea and I stamped, it was good but we walked so we were a bit slower than everyone else…
We wanted to get out a bit further, so we got lost up a giant hill…. when we came back we realised that we had gone in a giant circle! One thing I learnt about myself is that I should never ever map read for my group, 🙈. I didn’t even know where the mountain was!
Before we started our skateboard design we firstly started our tags and inquiry. For inquiry we had to decide the difference between street art and graffiti. Graffiti is like on street signs and places where you wouldn’t want it but street art is creative and you also need a license for painting in leagel places.
My tag is shooter. This is because when we played basketball at lunch everyone was calling me shooter because I stayed back and shot the goals with my friends.
The white paper was spayed with purple, pink, orange and green. It kind of looked liked a lifesaver lollies…! My letters were dripping with black and word stood out like neon lights.
On Wednesday our class had Art! We were doing our skateboard design, I didn’t have an idea about what I wanted to do….. so I just found a pretty colour and started painting! Then a few ideas popped into my head. I asked my Art teacher if she could make a light blue, I used that to paint the other side. I decided that I would decorate that with a mountain and grass at the bottom and then the other side would be the grass with flowers.
This week our class has started a topic/genre of writing called science fiction. It is fiction because it’s set in the future and we don’t know if it could happen or not. My story is based in the 2188 and 2016.
The world is ending, each country is in war with the other. Scientist in a secret lab have picked up radio transmissions from a planet called Japutter. But first Hazel and Buddy need to use the travel catcher to go back in time and collect anyone who wants to be saved, but they get stuck because the travel catcher won’t work again in the past. They have to use some pretty unusual things to get back…… I won’t spoil the end.
Please tune in to my posts, can’t wait to hear your comments!!!
