Today I learned how to write a cinquain poem. Because of this learning I can now write a new type of poem. The next step in my learning is to write a good cinquain.

In my picture I put the big tree where we met to get ready for everything. I also drew a picture of the hydroslydes and the Hobo Stoves whitch was one of my favourite actievites on camp.
I used shading in all of the 3 pictures. I like my art because I used lots of detail in the pictures and I did some good shading. Next time I would take more time because I think that I did my art a bit too fast in some places, but over all I think I did a good job of it.
I think that my charcoal art turned out really well, because it has shading, good pictures, and more shading.
But things I could have done better was shading at the start, and not go up to the teacher every 5 seconds.
I think that it shows most activities with an icon like orienteering I drew one of the pipe things that you had to find etc etc

I think my camp artwork is outstanding because I really liked the way I used watercolour and made my artwork light to dark. I think my artwork stands out from the black paper.
Next time I would like to make my blending more obvious going light to dark.
I Think My Charcoal
Art is Good I have used a variety of shading and some of its
white with three very different pictures a tree, pillow and bear
and a diamond smuggling box it's not one of the best in the
best in he class but i'm still really happy with it

Here is a human graph with the four brain profile quadrants overlayed so you can see the preferred ways of thinking that Team 14 have.
What does this tell us about our team and how we think?
What are our strengths and weaknesses as a team?
How can we use this information to improve our learning?
Here is another way of looking at the same information:
I wonder if the team can figure out how this image was created?
To day I learned that if you are doing a job that might take 10 minutes you need to tell the teacher.
Because of the learning I now know that I should tell the teacher and then go do the job.
The next step in my learning is that when a teacher wants you to do a job for them before you do the job go tell your own teacher that is what you are doing.

I reacon my charcoal art is O.K because the bike I think I could of done it abit better but it was really hard to do it in charcoal because the charcoal was too think but if we didn't have to do it with charcoal I t probably would have turned out better than it did also I don't think that the belt didn't turn out the best that it could of been, if I had other colours it would have been more affective that it is.

Today we learnt how to use adobe photoshop. It was fun because we got to mess around with people's photos and make them look funny and silly. Some of us did Rob and Claire and some did themselves. We hope to put these photos on our web site once we've finished them. This might take a bit of time because we've have just started learning Photoshop.

On the first day back of school and the second term we were all excited to come and see Mr Clarke we welcomed some visitors they were wonderful and helpful!! We wrote our smart goals for term two. At the end of the day we welcomed "Daniel" who is new to team 14 and F.O.S. We can't wait to get to know him more. In the afternoon we learn't about the brain. And how we fit into it. There were 4 colours that represented us. Red, Green, Yellow and Blue.

I like my picasso art because it's colourful and blended well next time I would like to do it myself. And thank you so much to Juliette and Penny for helping me.
I don't really like my camp art because I couldn't do it really well becuase I broke my arm. Next time I want it to be more interesting and capture attention. I would not have done it more interesting if it wasn't for my mum who helped me complete it.

when I finished my camp art on the computer I thought It was really cool but then when the day came to hand it in everyone turned up with paintings real hobo stoves and the whole shooting match so I went back home and worked all night to get my art ready and made 3Dimensional copies of everything on camp, but they were made of paper !!
I thought that my charcol art was really good until I showed the teacher and I realised that I had no shading and I had a lot of white spots so I got sent back a number of times and it was really annoying so I shaded the whole thing and when I brang it back the teacher thought it was great MY NEXT STEP IS TO listen to the teacher feedback given forward too me
‘Where am I? ahhhh’’ I was lost with only Kate, Bertie and Daniel to help me survive. It’s good I brought my drink bottle and camera to remember the times. “Oh no” I said. I lost my camera!
I think I’m a bit scared.
I have to admit I was over reacting with the whole lost thing. We were just orienteering, but we were lost, I’ll tell you that.
The orienteering things our group had to find looked like drink bottles but with out the lid. They had little codes on them so noone would cheat. Before we started the instructor said “Good luck guys don’t get lost and try to beat the other groups scores”. Everyone was thinking “I’ll try” .The last words she said was “Go”.
Our team started run down a straight path but all the others turned right. Our team got all the easy ones first and then the markers got harder and harder to find. Our brains were about to explode until…. WE WERE LOST for only about 5 minutes. Our team finally found another group. We were saved!
Finally we decided to try find two more markers. On the way we saw Mr Clarke he gave us some clues it was a bit sneaky but anyway it was his choice!
By the end our team found out that we were the first back. I thought our team should get back early because there was a penalty if you were late. We didn’t want that. Another groups came back but Pennys group was 10 minutes late so they got 20 points taken off..
All the scores were added up and our team got 410 Penny’s group got 180 and the other group got 330. Guess what our team won and our group beat the other groups scores. WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!
I thought orienteering was fun and exiting. Next time I go orienteering I’m going to work with other people I haven’t worked with before. Next time I need to remember always go to the toilet before you go orienteering.

I like my charcoal art because it has lots of things in it like a drink bottle and a map.
Next time I want to shade it more and make things look more real. I did it all in one lunch time and I think I did it really well apart from that.
I think my camp art is good because it showed everything that we did at camp and if someone looked at it they could see all of the diffirent things we did and had at camp.
Something I could work on next time would me to make it bigger.
I have finished my charcoal art and I think it's great and i'm very proud of it I
have featured on it the big tree that we used everyday my diamond
smuggling box and my pillow with a teddy bear I havn't coulered all of
it in but as I said i'm still proud of it
I think my picasso art was ok but next time I need to work on putting the eyes and mouth and nose in different places because most of mine were in the right places. I also need to work on blending the colours into eachother so that you can't tell when one colour changes to another colour.
I think my charcoal art was quite good but next time I need to work on making the lines different widths and sizes and mixing them together so that they look different and also making my pictures bigger and more detailed.

I like my charcoal art because it has lots of shading and different textures.
My favourite part of my charcoal art is the tree with a path behind it, that pictres shows the fun we had running around the forest orienteering. Next time I would Spend more time on it and colour the backround in better.
