Auckland Museum

Auckland Museum is a museum that has a mix of Maori and Pacific carving and weavings. The Year 7s went there because our topic for term 4 is Art Attack so we went there to look at the Pacific and Maori patterns, designs and artwork.

The Grand Foyer is the front entrance. This hall is made from terrazzo (marble chips embedded in concrete to form patterns). And on the roof the stained glass leads light from outside directly above the entrance foyer.

The first gallery we went to first was the Pacific Masterpieces we also had a task to do which was sketch some of the art/patterns that you pick. Next we walked to the Maori gallery which has the  
There is an area named the Pacific Masterpieces thats where we went first to look at the all the islands like Easter Islands,Tahiti,Rarotonga,Niue,Kiribati and more.

There is also two areas that involve the sea one called Coastal and Oceans. The Coastal area tells you about the Wonderful coasts of New Zealand like Mission bay which you can see from the front on the Museum. And the Oceans area is were you can see a lot of sea creatures that are popular in New Zealand or around the world and also extinct animals.

Why do we need to sleep?

Why do we need to sleep?

Everyone need to sleep because your body needs sleep especially if you’ve been playing sports or working. If you don't get enough sleep you wake up grumpy or very tired.

Sleep gives your body a rest and allows it to prepare for the next day. Kids in between 5 and 13 need about 10 to 11 hours of sleep. Going without sleep for 5 nights you will start hallucinating.

Why is it important to have class/school rules

Why is it important to have class/school rules?

Having school rules is important for safety. And for others education. No rules would lead to bullying,theft and destruction.

Rules are important because there needs to know where the boundaries are. Rules need to be followed just like laws. Because laws are just rules.

Without rules or boundaries there would be things happening like theft destructruction disrespecting teachers and bullying. Having no rules would be like having no laws and no one would control.

thats why rules are good

Immersion Assembly

Immersion Assembly was yesterday because it was the first day back at school. This term were learning about art and the subject is called Art Attack. The purpose of immersion assembly is to inform the students about what we’re learning about this term.

Mr Burt begins the assembly by welcoming the school to the new term. He had a tablet taped to his chest that was playing Speed Art onto a screen. Then he introduced Team One’s item.

Team One’s item was about art involving the environment. Things like water and nature. Next was Team 2. Their item was about the primary colours which are Blue, Red and Green. Without the primary colours  there wouldn’t be other colours. After that Team 3’s item was about different artists.

I liked team 4’s item because Mr Sommerville made me laugh. They are also learning about different artists such as Van Gogh, Fatu Feu’u and Monet.

Finally Team 5 all the teachers painted our principal Mr Burt, and Vice principals Mrs Jarman and Mr Jacobson. They left the best item till last.
