Room 20's Poetry

Spot's Weekend

On Friday 27 June, Spot and I had an awesome day. We went to my cousin's birthday party.
Spot made lots of friends but Spot was also trying to steal the camera. My little cousin was hugging Spot - he loves spot. Another cousin of mine, Rosie, was playing with Spot too.
When Spot and I had to go home Spot said, " Happy birthday, Janny. Hope to see you again."

Spot's weekend

"What do you want to do first?"I asked Spot.
"Let's play hide and seek,"Spot suggested. On the 22nd of March, Saturday morning, Spot and I played hide and seek. Can you see Spot?He is a real good hider and seeker! It was around 5:30 when Spot decided he wanted to meet the famous Teddy, my guinea pig! We played for a long time. Spot got a few piggy backs, kisses and plenty more from Teddy. I hope Spot enjoyed his time with us. I know Teddy and I did!

Maui and the Sun.

Wow! Wednesday was a blast!  A Day with Mrs Yang is always exciting. She told us that we were going to do some art. Art that was dedicated to Maui and the Sun. First,we had to use different colours of pastel to fill the whole page of bright white cardboard. Once we were finished we had to draw a huge sun. On the sun we had to draw a mad warrior face that is very common to Maori culture. After that we had to draw huge flames on the beast. Then, we had to draw Koru on the back of the rainbow cardbourd. 

Cutting time! Once we had cut out the Koru we had to stick them on a huge peice of black paper. The last step of the artwork in progress was to stick on the huge sun. Then we were finally finished.

Check out our video of all our wonderful art.Written by Melody.
