Scale Drawing - Maata

This week for art LS2 did scale drawings. To begin we had to choose a picture then we needed to draw a grid over the top of it. We then had to draw another grid on a bigger sheet of paper, this grid was twice as big as the first grid. We then had to draw the enlargement by counting the grid squares. It was quite tricky but I think it looks quite good. My Scale Drawing has a ratio of 1:2.

Staying safe at the beach Maata

Today my learning was about staying safe at the beach. Today I have created a DLO and tips of staying safe at the beach.  Brooklyn helped me create this DLO and help with some of the questions. Today I learnt that you need to wear a life jacket when you go to the beach because it will stop you from drowning.

Learning to use Synonyms - Maata

This morning we were learning about Synonyms. Synonyms are words that mean the same as another word but could make your sentence more interesting. Our task was to replace a word in the sentences above, the word we changed is highlighted in red. To find the synonyms we went to google dictionary and looked up the word definition and synonym, then we needed to check the word made sense in our sentence.

Tech - Stained glass

Today was our first Rotation with Mr Grundy For Hard Materials. We will be working with stained glass. Mr Grundy showed us how to cut glass safely and how to use the copper tape and the soldering iron, as we will be using this equipment later when we have designed our picture. We then began working on the design stage and had to create six options that we may be able to use. It was quite tricky coming up with a design because you need to have straight edges for when you cut the glass.
